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?
Play ‘guess what happens next’ when reading stories together. Kids have a great imagination, and it’s amazing what they can think up!
Choose a letter of the alphabet, then ask your child to write down a food, an animal, a name, and a place that begins with this letter.
Singing counting songs such as 5 currant buns, 10 green bottles, can be a great way to help your child count backwards.
