Counting Activities
  • Building with blocks is a great way to introduce math concepts to your baby. Your baby might enjoy watching you make a tower. He might knock it over, he might help, but the concept of the tower and building is all math related. Count the blocks as you build. Talk about height/weight, colors and shapes. Babies love to hold, play and explore new things. Try different types of blocks to make the learning more unique.
  • Use counting as part of your everyday routine. Count items around your house such as the number of doors or stairs. Count the number of cereal snacks on your baby's plate, count the number of times you can jump or spin. Count everything you do, this will make numbers relevant to your baby's everyday life.
