Tell them that you are going to ask them some questions and they have to be quick with their answers. They have to answer as many questions as they can within three minutes. 

 

To motivate your child, you can give them something small that they can collect each time they give you the right answer (e.g. coins, sweeties, buttons), which they can count once the timer is done.
