Create your Own Number Book

To extend your child's Scavenger Hunt fun you can create your own Number Book.  Take pictures of where the numbers are hiding and then print out with your child.  It’s a creative way to use your puzzle in a different way PLUS you are working on number recognition, positional words and building vocabulary and literacy skills. Here's a peek at our Scavenger Hunt pictures

You could use any type of Numbers to create the Number Book.  Magnets, Hand drawn, Numbered Cubes or we choose to use our Puzzle Pieces in a fun new way.

TIP: Having your child manipulate thing images to glue onto the paper helps to connect to book and also more visual recognition time for the numbers.  
  • Write the text with your child as they describe the image “The 10 is on the rock” or “The 4 is next to the tree”
  • You could even have them draw items, stamps or place stickers to match the number for one to one correspondence. {More Ideas Coming Soon
