Fun for everyone
Here are some great ways you can help your child count, get family and friends involved, and keep everyone entertained. More people equals more fun
Create a tally chart
Jump to the beat
Making crayon rubbings of coins is a great way to help your child find out about the numbers on coins, and the different sizes of each coin.
You can play guessing games anywhere and everywhere. It’s an easy way to make a walk to school, or a car or bus journey more fun. Just think of a number between 0-30 and get your child to guess what it is. You can help them by saying ‘higher’ or ‘lower’.
Even mealtimes can turn into storytimes. Ask your child to create a story about the Cutlery family – with characters like Peggy Plate, Jamie Knife, Fiona Fork and Baby Spoon.
