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?

You can play guessing games anywhere and everywhere. It’s an easy way to make a walk to school, or a car or bus journey more fun. Just think of a number between 0-30 and get your child to guess what it is. You can help them by saying ‘higher’ or ‘lower’.

Get your child to think up a tasty feast their toys might enjoy – and then get them to write everything down in a shopping list. They could think about how many potatoes they’d need to buy? What’s for dessert?
