Kids have the wittiest of questions and the quirkiest of answers. Combine the two with social distancing and quarantine, and we have a really exhausted parent.
But hey, we know how you could use your kid’s questions to your advantage, while also getting them to learn a thing or two. Cha-ching!
Plugo Count – a math-based game combined with storytelling, that enables kids to learn math hands-on! But, before you take the dive, here’s a small little activity that’ll help you get a head start – Riddle me this!
What you’ll need:
- A0 size sheet and cardboard
- A pair of scissors (optional)
- Marker pen
- Sticky notes in different colors
How to play:
Step 1: Glue the A0 size sheet on the cardboard to make a game board.
Step 2: Write questions on the game board that need to be answered by your child, using mathematical equations.
Step 3: To add a dash of color, have your child answer on sticky notes and place it anywhere around the question.
Some fun questions you can write are:
1. How old do you think Santa is?
2. This summer, how many times did you help mommy in the kitchen?
3. How old will you be in 7 years?
4. How many times have you seen <your child’s favourite TV show/cartoon/movie>
5. How many toys do you own?
6. How many states are there in the USA / countries in North America?
Now play any game of Plugo Count to not just improve but put your math skills to test.
