Number Activities:

💡Timer fun..  This is great for getting children to understand about measuring time.   📱 Set the alarm  on your phone for 20 seconds and see what you can do before the alarm goes off…

  • How many times you can jump
  • How many bricks you  put on a tower
  • How many times you can run around the room.
  • …And of course wash your hands for the recommended time !

    Write down how many you did each time …can you improve? Who got more? Who got less?

    Alternatively set the timer  and see how long it takes
  • Run round the room 4 times
  • Complete an obstacle course in the house
  • Or even get dressed
  • Put the toys away and clear the room 

Write down the time and then see if you can improve ….
