This week we continued on the challenge of making games to keep us entertained in the school holidays.
We began with a simple die made from an old, clean custard carton.
After cutting the carton to have equal sides, we covered it in plain white paper. My daughter used circle stickers to make the sides of the die and then we laminated them.
A fun game that we all played.
An empty donut container was used for some simple counting and number recognition fun. By using tongs and chopsticks you can incorporate fine motor skills as well as maths concepts. All of the materials were things we had lying around at home and the activities were endless.
I made the numbers out of cellophane scraps and laminated them, but didn't stick them in the container so that we weren't limited in our activities. Being cellophane and plastic, it will make a perfect resource for the light table.
Throw the die and use the tongs to put the correct number of objects in the container.
We made the numbers out of straws and pipe cleaners and put them in the corresponding containers.
More complicated maths challenges.
Have a wonderful week and see you next Tuesday!
