Children love making things with their hands. They love games and they love challenges.
Our activity for this week gives them a chance to do all the things they love while teaching the number recognition, number sequencing and developing the hand-eye coordination!
What you will need
- Empty paper towel rolls or toilet rolls – cut into
- A shallow cardboard container
- Pom Pom or a small crushed up paper ball
- Permanent marker
- Paint (Only if you want to decorate your paper rolls and board)
- Colored markers
What to do
- Start by cutting the empty paper towel rolls into 3.5cm sections – you will need 10 pieces
- If you are decorating the toilet rolls and board, do it now
- Arrange them randomly inside the cardboard container. Be sure to leave enough room so the pom pom or small paper ball can roll between the pieces.
- Then lift each piece and glue it back in the same spot on the container.
- Allow the glue to dry for about an hour. Once the glue is dry, write the numbers 1-10 on top of the pieces in random order.
- Place the pom pom in the container and then game can begin.
How to play
– Help the kid to hold and move the cardboard container by their hands to roll the pom pom or the small paper ball through the numbered paper towels
– You can creatively design the rule at your will, for example: simply from 1 – 10, or odd number sequence, or even number sequence,…
– Let’s applause and award them when your children accomplish the mission, or encourage them to do better next time!
