Here are some great ways you can help your child count, get family and friends involved, and keep everyone entertained. More people equals more fun.
Try these fun family games
Game #1: Create a tally chart
This is a fun way to get everyone in the family involved. For example, you could find out the family’s favourite animal or fruit or TV show. You could also do it the other way round, and find out which type of music, or vegetable is their least favourite. Hello, Brussel sprouts!
Game #2: Jump to the beat
Game #3: Bursting bubbles
Game #4: Bingo
Bingo is a fast-paced game that kids love to play. You could buy, or make your own scorecards of 5 squares across and 5 squares down and add in the numbers. Cut out a matching set of numbers, put them in a hat or bowl, and give each child a scorecard and a coloured pen. Then pull out a number, show it to the children - and get them to colour over the matching number on their scorecard if they have it. They’ll love yelling ‘Bingo!’ when they get a full house.
