Snacks on the table!
This kind of maths exercise will make any kid happy. Prepare some sheets of paper with different numbers of circles on them and count together with the help of sweeties. Which, by the way, can be replaced by anything your child loves — berries, fruit, or crunchy crackers.?
Is mam going to dry the clothes on the line? No, today she’s brought those colorful pegs for another kind of activity. Draw different amounts of apples on popsicle sticks and write the corresponding numbers on the pegs. Your child will have fun matching the fitting pegs and sticks.?
This way of counting is loved by kids with a sweet tooth. Cut out a big cup out of paper and throw a die, then put that number of marshmallows in the cup.?
A great idea for those who are ready to stand a little cacophony in the name of arithmetic. Put a sticker with a number on each key and ask your kid to make a certain number using the right keys.?
If you have some spare pom-poms, use them to make your own little garden. You could also use different coloured round pieces of sponge instead. In winter this is an especially great activity for kids, because you can decorate a Christmas tree!?
Greater, or lesser than?
Who didn’t have trouble with the ’greater than’ and ’less than’ signs in math class? This cute crocodile will help your kid learn which is which.?
Dress the Snowman
A game for long winter evenings. Change the hat and your kid will have to dress the snowman in different clothes. It’s pretty hard to prepare in advance, but then this game will work a treat for a long time.?
There’s no better teacher to study fractions with than apples! They’re easy to cut into halves and quarters so that the child can eat a piece as a reward for success.
