Busy Hands: Number Hunt

One of the earliest learning games I played with Little Dude was the Number Hunt. It's a very simple game which promotes learning numbers by recognizing them, and placing them in the right order. This activity is really quick to set up and there's an added element of the finding hidden things.

You only need two things to play the Number Hunt - Post-It notes and a marker. In fact, when I took photos for this post, I was out of Post-It notes. So, I improvised and used regular paper and sellotape! Just write the numbers on the notes, 1 to 10, or higher if your child recognises them.

Hide them across the room. I make them fairly obvious, because, apart from finding the numbers, Little Dude also has to find them in order. Finding the numbers in the right order is the important part of the game.

Numbers - learning through play

One by one, place the numbers on a white board or even on a door, in order.

See? It's that simple, and a game that toddlers and preschoolers will really like playing. You can make the hiding places suitable for the age of your child.
