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!
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?
Read a book together and play I-Spy with the pictures – can your child find something in the book beginning with say P? Or D? You could try lots of other letters, too.
Kids love doing grown-up things. So the next time you pop out for a few things at the shops, why not let your child have a go at counting out and paying at the till?
