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
Try breakfast by numbers, using your morning cereal packs to count the number of words beginning with the same letter. Or, for fun, you could try and find rhyming words together.
Try taking it in turns to say alternate numbers to 30, while rolling or throwing a ball back and forth. Then, if you’re up for a challenge, try it backwards and in 2s. Start at different numbers, or if you don’t have a ball handy pat your tummy or clap your hands while you count.
Singing counting songs such as 5 currant buns, 10 green bottles, can be a great way to help your child count backwards.
