Fun with numbers 0-25!

Having a 4 year old and a not far off 2 year old, it can sometimes be hard to find activities that we can do together with my youngest destroying my eldest’s creation of similar. Both boys are into numbers, though clearly at very different levels. So I tried to think of an activity with some number cards that would entertain them both and not end in frustration. I got out cards for the numbers 0-25, and lay them on some mats. I then asked the boys to help me find the numbers in order. I got my preschooler to think about which number came next and then got them both to look for them. My toddler was great at finding the numbers up to 10, and we let him have the biggest go for these numbers. Then as the numbers got higher, it was my preschooler’s turn and my toddler lost interest (which was probably just as well!). I’ve got lots more ideas for these cards, but this was a fun way to start. Soon after we’d finished, my preschooler came out to the garden and asked to do it again!

Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
