The number game is one of the fun math games for kids.
Remove 10 cards from the deck - one of each: Ace, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and ten.
Tell your child the ace is one.
Shuffle the ten cards, then put them in a face down pile by your child on the table or floor.
Have him pick one card at a time and then put them in numerical order 1 to 10.
Once the cards are in order, mix them up again and this time play backwards, 10 to 1.
Then pull another set of cards numbered 1 through 10 out of the pile.
Mix them up, turn them over so they are face up and have your child pick pairs of each card from 1 to 10.
Then go back and get 3 cards of the same number and have him repeat this.
Once he does this, you can use all 4 cards with the same number on and have him match all of these up.
Have fun with the number game!
Let your son or daughter help you with a fun learning activity.
Put 4 plastic cups on the table by your child. Put one piece of a different pasta in each cup.
Place the 4 different pastas in a bowl and set this on the table by your child.
Have your child go through the bowl and match the pastas in the bowl to the pieces in each cup.
Once your child has 4 cups full of different pastas, mix these into the bowl, boil some water, and enjoy your dinner!
Let your child watch the pasta as it cooks to see how it goes from hard to being soft and ready to be eaten!
If the colored pasta has different shapes, your child can sort first by shapes and then by color.
Make learning fun by letting your child participate in activities that also let her help you with something around the house.
She'll learn she can have fun, learn and do something good for the whole family - like help make dinner!
