Learning to count

Funnily enough, when reading our one Dora the Explorer book, Miss 2 can count 1-5 in Spanish but in English will normally jump to her favourite numbers (7,8,9).
One of our recent craft activities was creating ‘Counting to 5 in Five Languages’ (English, Maori, Mandarin, Spanish, and French) but we ended up adding Croation as well as one of the families we play with regularly are bi-lingual.

Miss 2 chose the buttons with some guidance from me to encourage a mix of sizes and colours. Then I hot glued on the buttons and we’ve hung it on the fridge.

I try to count in different languages but it’s nice to have a reminder on the fridge and the buttons are a nice visual for her.
