We all get excited when we’ve got something to look forward to. And your child will love getting involved with planning an upcoming birthday or play date. They’ll get to be part of the excitement, and have the chance to count and use numbers at the same time.
Counting down to a big event games
Game #1: Save the date
Game #2: How many sleeps?
Game #3: Party planners
Your child will feel really important if you let them help you plan a special event. And by using the hours in the day you can also help them count - e.g. at 10am the guests will arrive… Talk about how long each activity will take - lunch is 30 minutes, games are 20 minutes. When you’re done, encourage your child to write down your party plan. Can we come too?
