1 Super skittles
Play a fun game of skittles to develop counting skills
Development matters: sometimes match number and quantity correctly (30-50 months); count an irregular arrangement of up to ten objects (40-60+ months).
Early learning goal: children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number.
What you need

Set of different-coloured skittles and a ball; safe, open space.
