  • Smelly playdough: add essential oils to homemade playdough to make an interesting sensorial activity, or just to add an extra dimension to the creative area.
  • Little objects are hidden in the split peas, the child then rummages around to try to find all the items.
  • Threading a short bead stair onto coloured embroidery thread makes subtraction with the beads much easier for the child to see clearly. Make sure you make really decent knots at the ends or tie a small bead into the knot! Alternatively thread them onto longer pieces of wire.

  • A negative number strip board
  • Avoid queues by having a Help Board. When children need help they velcro their name on the list. They then go back to their activity and often solve the problem themselves before the teacher reaches them!
