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
Have a go at making a simple shopping list together, and looking online to work out how much it would cost. What’s the change from £10?
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.
Next time you’re in a shop, get your child to look for prices and check how much different things cost. You could turn it into a bit of a treasure hunt, and look for items that cost more than and less than £1. Or look for any item that costs £2 exactly. If something is on offer – 2 for £1, say – you could help your child work out what each individual item costs.
