Number Orders

My daughter and I played this fun game her kindergarten teacher sent home the other day.  It would be easy to make and it help kids learn before, after, etc. as well as their number order and counting.

Get 11 film canisters or any other small containers.  Number them 0-10 with permanent marker on the top.

Have one person put a button in one of the containers while the other person hides their eyes.

Once the button is hidden the person guessing asks questions like, “Is it in number three.”  The hider then has to answer them by saying no it is after, before, or it is an even number, etc.

I love that this develops math language and number sense!  Happy playing and learning:)
