Counting is all fun and games

Children love playing games like Snakes and Ladders. As they roll the dice, climb the ladders and slither down the snakes they’re counting at the same time.

Handy tips

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?

Even mealtimes can turn into storytimes. Ask your child to create a story about the Cutlery family – with characters like Peggy Plate, Jamie Knife, Fiona Fork and Baby Spoon.

Playing dice games with your child is a simple way you can help them with their counting.
