This is a fun little activity that you can play with your preschooler. This activity will help to keep your child(ren) thinking about what number comes next.
Have your child(ren) stand in front of you with their back facing you. You are going to trace with your index finger on their back a number of your choice.
When your child(ren) think they know what the number might be. Have them say the number out load to you.
Start out simple at first:
Then up your number selection the further you go.
Remember don’t go too fast, do it slowly so that your child(ren) has time to think about what number you are tracing on their back. Your child needs to look straight ahead, no peeking...
Number Recognition Game:
If this number activity is becoming too easy for your child(ren). Make it challenging, add a timer to the mix. Get a piece of scrap paper, so you can keep a tally. Start the timer, and see how many your child(ren) can get right, before the timer goes off.
Tally up the numbers...
Make it a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy.
