Number matching games
Here are two simple number matching games that we enjoy playing at home.
Activity 1: Write numbers 1-20 (depending on your kids age) in two set of papers. I have used bottle caps and card stock papers. Ask your child to
- match the numbers from either set and
- arrange it in order. (This is optional for young kids)
- Ask them read out the numbers as they match them
Aim: Number recognition and number order
Activity 2: This is the age old memory game. Cut paper into 12/16 small cards of same size. Keep the matrix as simple as possible – 4X4 (16 cards) or 3X4 (12 cards). More cards may confuse young kids.
Aim: Number recognition and improving memory
Two kids can play this game or you can join with your child. My 3 years 1 month old gets frustrated if I start scoring more than him He is still too young to play this game without cheating though
