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.
Try spotting shapes together – how many circles, triangles or squares can your child spot in the room. After they’ve named the shape, they could look for other items with the same shape.
Play ‘guess what happens next’ when reading stories together. Kids have a great imagination, and it’s amazing what they can think up!
