Lot or Little

Toddler On the Go

Look at the world around you and call your child’s attention to things you see like people, cars, buildings, or animals. Point to them and ask them, “How many do you see?” A lot or a little?” When they understand the rules of the game, invite them to take the lead. Then take turns!

Young children are born with a sense of numbers. Estimating is one of the first things they can do. Even though older children sometimes begin to believe they aren’t good at numbers, playing “Lot or Little” helps them stay comfortable with this inborn sense.
