We Play - Car Park Attendant


Don't forget to stop by Childhood 101 We Play where you can find lots of other great play ideas....

We     Play

Little cars get played with a lot in our house by both of the kids so when I saw this car parking game while blog hopping many months ago I knew we should try it (sorry I can't remember which blog I saw it on). I drew a 12 space car park (but i think 6 would have been enough) on a piece of paper and numbered the parking spaces 1 - 6 and included dots to help Neevah identify the number. We started out playing this as a dice game but as the car park got full Neevah became frustrated re rolling the dice to try and find an empty car park so the dice got ditched and I called out numbers for her.

Hello! can I find you a car park

Counting the number on the dice

Vroom Vroom a number 5

Beep Beep a number 3

Come Play at Childhood 101 We Play link up

:( We don't have enough cars in our house to play this, but what a great way to teach numbers, and the relationship between numbers and symbols (the dots on the dice!) :)

What a great game! I think my boys would really love this.

My son will LOVE this. He's just starting to identify numbers. Thank you so much for sharing.

Oh! Awesome game. Will have to get hubby to go over to his dad's house and get his cars for the girls to try this at some stage.

We have plenty of cars to do this fun math activity. I am always looking for easy/low maintenace ideas for teaching through play. This is a wonderful idea. When using this in a pre-school class setting you could laminate the card so it could be played with over and over again. Thanks for the post. :)

I find it quite hard to come up with/find fun Maths activities ... but this one kept her interest :)

Joyce - yes laminating the card would be an excellent idea!
