The twins are three now and really interested in numbers. I have been starting to slowly introduce. number recognition into our play activities. They love play dough and having tea parties and it seemed like a good opportunity to combine the two activities and introduce a bit of sneaky learning too.
I made some play dough and added some pink food colouring, pink sprinkles and some strawberry essence to make it smell wonderful. I laid out lots of silicone cupcake cases which we use a lot for play. They are great as you can wash them and reuse them as often as you want. I also laid out candles and candle numbers as well as a few things for decoration like sprinkles and feathers. The colours I have chosen are unashamedly girly as we are completely in the pink phase in this house. It would be easy to change it to match your children’s favourite colours and make it more appealing.
