Play a game by hiding something small in your hand behind your back. First, show your child the object, like a coin or a pen, in your hand. Put it behind your back and change hands or leave it in the same. Ask them to guess which hand the object is in. Let them hide the object and you guess.

When your child guesses which hand the object is in, they’re focusing, looking for clues, and making predictions. This game helps build an understanding of math concepts. And taking turns is important!
