Good mood food
Combining numbers with food keeps little minds busy – you’ll get a little extra help in the kitchen too.
A family get together
Kids love to talk about their favourite characters from their tv shows or cartoons they like. You could get them to write about them, too. Ask your child to say why they like that character? Are they funny, clever, do they have special powers?
If you don’t have stairs in your home, you could count footsteps on the way to bed instead. You could try guessing how many steps before they reach their bedroom door? How many steps from the door to their bed? Then count them out to get the number.
Seasonal: Make a gift list for Christmas/the holidays – what’s on your list? What do you need to get for your friends and family?
