I am looking for some advice on how to teach DS (3.5years) his numbers and phonics in a fun way. My older child used to sit and play with flash cards and do the various toddler sticker books - it was all fun for her. But DS doesn't SIT! I've tried hopscotch on the patio but he's not really keen on that, tried cooking so that he can count the spoons of flour he serves out - but it all ends up as messy play
(which he's more interested in.)
Painting with numbers (I draw a big number) and get him to paint it in - but we get blob of blue and no number at the end.
Any innovative ideas would be much appreciated. (He's not at all interested in the lovely toddler sticker books where you can trace a number or stick the relevant phonic down)
