Put a picture, and guess name

Arrange some cards according to your imagination. You can arrange them into a long line, or you can arrange them into squares, rectangles, triangles or simple cartoon patterns that kids like. Then ask your child to guess what the shapes you put in look like.

When the child guesses almost right, don't forget to tell the child which one is a triangle, which one is a rectangle, and which one is a square ...... This is the key to the game.

This game not only enriches the child's imagination, but also allows him to recognize the names of several basic shapes and stimulates his desire to create. When playing this game, parents should not teach their children the names of the patterns directly, so as not to limit their imagination and hinder their ability to think independently.

Ask the cards to be put in place

Arrange the cards according to certain rules, you can follow "1, 2, 3 ......" , "1, 3, 5 ......" , "2, 4, 6 ...... " rules, or you can think of a method.

After the child looks at the cards you put in, you put them away and put them in again according to the original rule, but one or more of the cards you put in are taken away from you. At this point, ask the child to replace the card that you took away.

This game allows your child to learn to summarize the laws of numbers, which is good for developing his analytical skills, and at the same time, it can cultivate his patience. However, because this game is difficult, parents must stop at the right time and not let the difficulty of the game hurt their children's enthusiasm for learning math. At the beginning, children will inevitably feel a little embarrassed, but parents must encourage them and help them analyze the reasons.


First tell your child that each card represents a soldier. Then, in the child's eyes, the cards are alive. At this point, the cards can be lined up from A to 10, with A representing the 1st soldier, 2 representing the 2nd soldier, and so on.

The children must count from 1 to 10 and then ask the child to represent the soldier. You will be an officer, and then you will order a certain number of soldiers to go out and have the children take out this card. If the child takes out the wrong one, you can punish him by repeating the number he represents 3 times. After the punishment, you can continue playing. When you play for a certain amount of time, remember to switch roles with the children.

See who wins more

Sort the number cards in the whole deck into two, one more and one less, and ask the child to choose one. After you have chosen one, the game begins. You and your child each play a card, and then you can ask your child to add up the numbers of the two cards.

You can also ask your child to subtract the number of smaller cards from the number of larger cards, and then work with your child to see who can figure out the answer first. The first person to figure out the answer wins two cards, and then play and count until all the cards in one side's hand are lost.

When playing this game, the child can be very anxious. Parents should be patient, help him build confidence and guide him to calculate slowly. When designing this game, be sure to go step by step, from light to deep, and not increase the difficulty all at once.
