My son loves matching up the cards in different ways as a three year old. This is definitely a game he can continue to grow into.
This game makes counting fun! It also does a great job of showing numbers in a variety of ways. I also loved that there were several different games that you can play, with ages listed. I played these games with both my 4yo and 6yo and I look forward to playing the games as they get older too.
Tiny Polka Dot was a good choice for my Kindy. There's a lot of different ways to play based on the child's current skill level and which skill is being taught. I especially love how so many challenges come in one tiny box, so it doesn't take up a ton of real estate on the homeschool shelf.
This is a fun way to learn numbers. It includes beginner to more advanced skill levels so can be played across multiple age groups. It doubles as a fun family game!
This is a great activity. Because of the level of my children, we have not gotten to the higher numbers yet, but it is a great way to practice numbers. It is quick. However, I wouldn't say it is a favorite, it is not bad, there are so many great things in the kit though, that this just isn't the #1 activity.
