I taped out a maze on our floor with masking and painter’s tape. To make it a number maze to practice counting, I simple labeled it with numbers, with one path being in numerical order. The rest random.
[By the way: that was the extent of George's participation in the maze activity. Sitting on the maze.]
I used the tape itself as the road of the maze [instead of between the tape lines].
I made sure to include numbers that Henry wasn’t quite as familiar with [to fifteen].
He’s got 1-10 down pat, but starts getting confused at 13 [skipping to 16, then 19].
And drove through the maze, in the order of the numbers.
As I suspected, he did need some help with the double digit numbers and also with the next number after 13. But overall, I was quite impressed!
A fun, interactive way to learn your numbers!
You can adjust the numbers up or down to your child’s level.
Or even do skip counting [by 5s or 10s]!
ABCs would be another fun way to do this maze!
*Beware: Use painters tape on your floor if at all possible. Other tape sticks. Bad.
