      Thanks Pam! It's one of the double benefits of blogging I guess. I blog to record my kids childhood. But because I know that I'm going to blog our activities, I try to come up with things that are more varied, more fun, more educational than I would normally. Which means more memories for the kids, and more blog posts for me. πŸ™‚

    We are in the dead of winter here but going to make up something like this indoors. My daughter is 3.5 so this numbers game would be perfect!!

      Yes I was thinking it could be done indoors, perhaps with fabric pens on a big sheet, or with markers on a big piece of cardboard, or with electrical tape on tiles or floorboards. Let me know how you go!

      • http://dabblingmomma.blogspot.com/2014/01/learnin… This is what I decided to do! I used painters tape on our kitchen floor. I wanted the numbers to be randomly about and it worked out great. We started off throwing bean bags onto the numbers I called out and then Tiffany called numbers for me. After that she jumped on the numbers AND then we added dice to the game. We rolled the dice, Tiffany had to count the dots and then either throw the bean bag or jump to the number. We had a really good time AND it was still educational! Thanks for the great idea!!

  6. Great game, Danya, my Mr 4 would love this activity. He has temporarily "forgotten" how to count (something to do with a growth spurt, I suppose) so this is a fun way to gently reignite the learning.

    What a cool way to learn numbers… and how I wish we had just a little bit of concrete or paving somewhere to do this and other chalk activities!

    Learning their numbers is a skill they will use all their life. Once they have that accomplished – they can go forward.
    This game will develop your girls balance and fine motor skills too. Ticks all boxes.
