Days of the Week, months of the year - can you put them in order?
Guess my rule – mixture of 2d, 3d shapes or amounts. Chose a rule and sort them into a box, can you guess the rule? I.e. shapes with 4 corners, shapes with curved sides, shapes with triangles on them.
Challenge scavenger hunt – find the biggest thing in the house, smallest, longest, shortest, roundest, straightest, numbers etc 😊
One more, one less catch. Shout a question, ‘one more than 2…’ and pass it for the answer 😊
Party food groups. Can you sort something yummy between 2 teddies, can you split them between 3 teddies, 4 teddies? Is it fair on all of them? Are they equal groups?
How many different patterns can you make with your toys? Can someone spot your pattern rule?
Get your parents to give you a piece of string/wool. Can you find something that is exactly the same length? Very good for encouraging descriptive maths language and a good opportunity for a hot cup of tea parents!
Length/height scavenger hunt. Can you find 5 things and put them in height order or length order? You can extend this to weight too.
Pass the parcel, wrap up some numbers, number sentences, shapes, anything maths related and play 😊
