Looking for numbers

This game helps your child learn about numbers while you’re out and about.

Learning numbers at this age will help your child when they eventually start school. You can make it a fun game that keeps them entertained while you’re out.

Encourage your child to spot the number that’s the same as their age. Make sure they know what it is and what the number looks like.

While you’re out, ask them where they can see that number, for example on doors, cars or signs.

You can turn it into a game of who finds the most numbers.

Good to know

It’s important to help children to see that numbers are everywhere. Recognising numbers will help them with maths as they get older.
