I did counting with my kids as they climbed, jumped, swinging on swings. It was great fun and it did introduce them to numbers with a smile. They were 4,5,6 yrs of age. They are now successful adults in math and other ways. Thanks for the fun ideas and encouraging words for every day math fun.
I'm currently working on the possibilities of an interactive math playground. This would be a playground that kids play on and are independently exposed to math concepts.
If you have any further ideas, I'm open to them. I believe that there are many mini-mathematicians out there. I also believe that combining play and enjoyment in mental aspects of learning helps everyone learn to 'think' ...with a smile.
Thank you for you posting
