Games for two
Counting with your child is a good way to get them thinking and keep engaged while you spend quality time together.
Snakes and ladders
Try spotting shapes together – how many circles, triangles or squares can your child spot in the room. After they’ve named the shape, they could look for other items with the same shape.
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.
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.
