Counting for kicks

A simple kick about in the park together is a great way for your child to have fun, keep busy – and use numbers. After all – counting goals, touches and keepie-uppies is all about counting. Watch this short video to see how your visits to the park could soon add up.

Handy tips

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?

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.

Pick somewhere your child goes to a lot – like their school, or the park, or a shop – and ask them to write down directions for how to get there from your home.
