Numbers Activity - Matching Game

My son has been struggling to recognise his numbers so for this month our topic was Numbers. We made a matching number game to help him improve. He found it really fun and wanted to win which also help his attention span and sit down until there was a winner. He is only 3 so we didn't have a lot of rules, only that he must take it in turns to choose a picture card. If he already covered that number the card would go back and it was my turn.




He was very proud when he was able to complete the whole board independently !!

To start you will need:
Cardboard tube
Cardboard
Green or red paint
tissue paper
glue
pom poms
and a thick pen

First paint the tube and leave to dry



Next cut a slit in the tube where the eyes will be, use a pen to draw eyes onto the cardboard and slide it in to the slit.
Glue the pom poms onto the tube to make his nose.
Rip the tissue paper into strips and glue them to the inside of the mouth


 Once the inside is filled with tissue paper, IT'S FINISHED !!
