Here's a game to play with a grown-up!
How do you play?
You'll need a grown-up to play with.
You can print out these cards or use this interactivity. Take it in turns to turn the cards over. Can you match the pictures? What do you need to look for?
Easier version: instead of turning over the cards, focus on sorting the printed cards into matching sets.
Harder version: children can use these blank cards to make their own sets of additional cards with different numbers on.
There's a group version of this game here.
