WINTER COUNTING GAMES   
You can help your child develop beginning math concepts by playing simple number games with her.

COUNTING COTTON BALLS
Give your child a bag of cotton balls and five baggies with number labels on them. Number the bags with numerals such as 3, 6, 10. Then have him fill the bags with that number of cotton balls.

COUNTING PAIRS
Go through your house and dig up five pairs of gloves or mittens. Mix them up and give them to your child. First, have her sort the mittens into pairs, then have her count for you how many pairs, then how many individual mittens.

COUNTING SNOWMEN
If you are lucky enough to live in a snow filled environment, count snowmen when out driving.

 
COUNTING BUTTONS
Winter time is usually a time of heavy clothing with lots of buttons. Go on a button search with your child. Have him count how many buttons they have on, then count how many buttons you have on. Who has on the most?
