You don’t have to go far to find lots of fun ways to help your child count. It can be really easy to bring numbers into everyday activities at home – from breakfast to bedtime.
Breakfast by numbers
Two dice = six sides each = lots of different numbers!
Pick somewhere your child goes to a lot – like their school, or the park, or a shop – and ask them to write down directions for how to get there from your home.
Put some music on, dance around, and get your child to count out different actions with you – like 10 hops or 16 jumps – in time to the music. It’s a good way to use up some excess energy too!
Ask your child to write about a castle they would build for a King or Queen. They could think about how many rooms it would have, what might be in the rooms, and what they’d be used for.
