Counting shapes

You can use blocks with your child and sort the blocks by colour or shape.  For example, place all the blue blocks in one pile and the red ones in another. After a time, your child will start to copy you and join in the sorting. These sorting skills will help them:

  • count
  • recognise patterns
  • measure things
