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
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’.
Get your kids to help a ‘book buddy’ to read. Buddies can be a younger sister or brother, or even a favourite soft toy. Letting your child help their book buddy to read will keep them occupied, and help them with their own reading.
When you’ve finished reading a story, ask your child to write or draw a new story about their favourite character in the book.
