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!
Playing dice games with your child is a simple way you can help them with their counting.
Try breakfast by numbers, using your morning cereal packs to count the number of words beginning with the same letter. Or, for fun, you could try and find rhyming words together.
Get your child to think up a tasty feast their toys might enjoy – and then get them to write everything down in a shopping list. They could think about how many potatoes they’d need to buy? What’s for dessert?
