 Nila has definitely come on leaps and bounds since starting Nursery , and although we have been home learning for the past few months , we’ve had some amazing resources to make sure she stays on track and she’s been absolutely smashing it .

Counting has always been one of her favourite things to do , counting the steps when we go up and down them, counting my pennies from my purse , she loves it .

We have been using the Learning Resources Three Bear Family Counter set and the Friendly Farm Animal Counters.

They are designed to help little ones with their maths and they make counting so much more fun with their different coloured designs.

The bears are different colours and sizes, which also helps to teach children their colours and great for sorting too.

We’ve been using both sets over the past week with her home schooling as she has been learning all about big and small. We have had to sort toys into big and small piles ,these have been great for this and she’s really getting the hang of it .

The three bear family counter set includes 96 bears in six different colours , 3 different sizes and 3 different weights.

The friendly farm animal counters include 72 different barnyard buddies in 6 different shapes, 6 different colours and 2 sizes .

Both sets are soft rubber and come in storage buckets . I think these would make great birthday presents too , she has already asked for the mini Dino counters for hers :)
