To help Hannah revise her numbers from 1-10, I came up with a matching game using clothes pegs and dot stickers. I reckoned most mothers have played something similar with their children before.
I had previously made number cards using a cereal box and number stickers (bought from scrap-booking shop). Hannah hasn’t played with them for a while so I decided to recycle them for our game. Using leftover dot stickers, I wrote the numbers, stuck them on the clothes peg and had Hannah match them.
There are many variations of matching games you could try:
- Number word to digit (I’m going to try this next)
- Capital letter to lower-case letter
- Number dots to digit or number word
- Peg colour to word
- Number of pegs to digit
The list is endless! Just do a quick search on the Internet and you know what I mean. I’m starting to love my pegs already! Never underestimate the humble clothes peg ~Hee!
P/s: I love this set of rainbow coloured pegs. They just brighten up my laundry days 🙂
