|Boy with train carriage|
First we organised all the carriages according to colour. B loves catagorising things at the moment and enjoyed seeing them all lined up neatly.
Then we counted them and drew the right number of boxes on a piece of paper.

It was lovely to talk about the differences in the carriages and how they should go together. I’m sure my little boy developed some important skills as we
- talked about colour, shape and size
- created a picture diagram of something real.
- matched carriages as we built a train.
He also get less upset when the train is damaged as he knows it can be easily put together again - in the same order!
