About a year ago we went away on a family holiday to Wales. We were in the car for around 7 hours. That’s right, 7 hours with bored kids and frustrated parents. Usually, when we are going to be in one place for a long time, I take some things for the kids to do but as you can imagine they had exhausted everything I had brought along within the first 4 hours. It was at this time, in desperation, that I decided to take action. So, I started creating little games. You know those kind of I spy games. But I took it further and started to write quizzes. But ones that were relevant to being on a journey. For example, I would tell everyone to look out for a speed sign and as soon as we all heard the speed on the speed sign we would write down all the ways we could think of to make that number. It seems so simple but games like this kept us busy for hours. And the kids loved it. In fact, even I found it fun.
There are many math-based games available in educational toy stores that will help to reinforce the principles your child learns in worksheets. Computer games can help too, but depending on the age of your child, it is best not to encourage too much computer use at an early age. Everyday activities can be turned into math lessons too. A trip to the grocery store can turn into a math lesson if you encourage your child to help you count how many items you are buying, or add up the bottles of milk as you add them to your cart. Your aim should be to make math fun for your child and help them gain a solid understanding of the basics. Encourage your child to incorporate math into their daily activities, help them do mathematics worksheets, and then use the lessons therein to create fun activities for your child.
