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

Read a book together and play I-Spy with the pictures – can your child find something in the book beginning with say P? Or D? You could try lots of other letters, too.

If you come across a new word while you’re reading a story, try making up funny sentences with the new word.

Put some music on, dance around, and get your child to count out different actions with you – like 10 hops or 16 jumps – in time to the music. It’s a good way to use up some excess energy too!
