Playing ball games
Counting and numbers when you are out and about together is a really easy way to keep kids entertained and happy. So why not try these activities the next time you’re down the park for a wee kick-about?
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.
Writing a list can be a great way for kids to use their imagination. Ask your child what they’d pack if they were going into the jungle? What might they find there, and would they need to include any special items?
Singing counting songs such as 5 currant buns, 10 green bottles, can be a great way to help your child count backwards.
