How to Play
Point out numbers as you see them - on telephones, number plates, houses, signs and so on. Ask your child to go on a `number hunt¿ to find a 2 while you're driving, for example, or a 4 while grocery shopping.
Print the Number Template (Click on the computer icon), cut out the numbers and laminate them (you can do this at a copy shop). Punch one hole in the top left-hand corner of each card, and link the cards in consecutive order with a metal or plastic shower ring.
Your child can use this number book as a handy reference whenever a number comes up. Ask them to match a number on a signpost with one in the book.
