When my boys were little we easily incorporated learning simple math skills into our every day play. As the boys would pick up blocks I would count it for them….until they learned how themselves. When they asked for snacks I would give them a specific number of snacks that they could have – like 4 pretzels or 3 raisins. When cleaning up toys I assigned each child a different number of toys that they were responsible for…….such simple ways to incorporate math into your every day routine!
