Alternate Counting to 10 or 20


Activity: Pass the Teddy

You will need: a small cuddly toy


Tell your child that you will take turns counting to 10 or 20. Whoever has the toy will say the number. Hold the cuddly toy and say the number 1. Pass the toy to your child and ask them to say the next number. Tell them to give the toy back to you as you say the number three. Keep going until you reach 10 or 20.


Repeat the activity but this time count a little bit faster. You can let your child start first. You can also alternate saying two numbers (if you count “1, 2”, your child should say, “3, 4”).
