Encourage number recognition and counting skills with a simple game that makes the most of the contents of your recycling bin.
Using number stickers or a marker, label ten plastic bottles with numbers 1 through 10. Help your kids to set up the bottles as shown, then let them knock them down with a ball. Talk about the numbers on the bottles after each roll ("You knocked down 1 and 3!" "Can you knock down 2 and 4?"). To introduce basic addition skills, count up the points after each roll.
