Missing Numbers

by Bhavini Pandya November 18, 2020

This maths What’s in my tray? activity will support your child’s understanding of the number concept and also help to order numbers.

What to do:

  • Create a grid on the base of a tray using masking tape.
  • Write out the numbers you want to focus on (1-40 in our activity) on small pieces of card.
  • Cut the numbers out and place into a separate container.
  • Place a few numbers into the grid and leave the rest blank.
  • Can your child fill in the gaps with the extra numbers?
