Number Treasure Hunt

This is a simple idea to encourage children to identify and order numbers but also to have some fun.

You will need pieces of card or paper with numerals written on them 0-10 ( or 0-20 for children confident working with larger numbers).

Hide the number cards around the room or in the garden for the child to find. As they find a card, get them to tell you which number it is and then clap or stamp out that number. You can help your child find the number cards by telling them they are hot (close) or cold (far away).

As they are found, lay the cards on the floor and get your child to put them in order.
