We were playing with balloons the other day and I thought we’d try an activity out I saw on Pinterest. I took balloons and numbered them 1-10 with a Sharpie.
When he woke up, I explained to him that he needed to find 10 balloons with numbers on them. The only rule was that he had to start with #1 and had to find the balloons in order. For example, if he found #8, he had to leave it there until he was ready to find that number.
Then to add on to this activity, we talked about how when we add a 1 in front of the number, it adds ten to it and changes its name. For example 1+3= 13. I know this went WAY over his head, but he enjoyed coloring on the balloons and writing a ‘1’ on the balloons.
