Toddlers love the math, they love creating and creating.
You can send your child on a number hunt through the house. It’s great to get them moving and they will have fun searching for your hand drawn numbers posted everywhere.
You will need cards, books or other items that show numbers. The more variety the better, just make sure that you place them in spots around the house that your toddler will be aware of. As a last resort if you do not have anything around to make it work use whatever you can to draw large numbers on.
Hide them in their room,
on the door,
on the floor
That’s our tip for today, we love math days…
