As promised yesterday, here are some more quick and easy at home learning resources made from lids. These are more suitable for children in the kindergarten, pre-school and early primary years and are great for reinforcing early mathematical skills.
1. Size sequencing: collect lids of all different sizes and work with your child to sequence them from smallest to largest (photo above).
2. Patterning: make repeated patterns with collections of two, three or even four different coloured lids.
3. Sequencing numerals: reinforce recognition of and sequence of numerals 0-10, or for older children 0-20.
4. Matching game: match the correct number of spots with the corresponding numeral. Or turn them all over for a game of concentration (see more about concentration and other short term memory games here).
