Prepare your childs maths readiness with this simple game.

Matching games will help your child identify colours and shapes and will begin their preparation for mathematical readiness. Place a variety of different objects and their matching parts jumbled around on the floor. Ask your child to match up the pairs e.g. Lids and jars, cups and saucers, toothbrush and paste, nuts and bolts etc. Talk about why each pair goes together. Ask your child questions about the size, shape, colour and compatibility of each pair. This game can also be played with children’s playing cards.
