Maths hide and seek

Last night coming up with a quick game to keep Emily occupied while I finished making dinner I pulled out some plastic numbers and we counted and pulled out numbers in order.

I found Emily always needs to return to the beginning to count on the next number which is perfectly fine in learning numbers but I decided to see if I could extend her. Of course Alexander chimed in and did well at this game. I got Emily to close her eyes and I took one number away. When she opened them the game was to see which number was missing and retrieve it from the box.
They loved it. Emily liked taking the numbers away for Alexander to guess and vice versa.

To make it hard for mummy she takes a couple of numbers away. A very fun easy game. It could be done with playing cards or UNO cards or just cards hand written with the numbers. Also an easy game for the two to play together with limited parental help after initial game.
