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
Create a tally chart, for example to find out the family’s favourite animal or fruit or TV show. You could also do it the other way round, and find out which vegetable or type of music is their least favourite!
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?
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.
