Children enjoy visualising how many toys are hidden in a box.

Put toys one at a time into the box, so children cannot see them inside, counting altogether.
Ask: ‘Can you show on your fingers how many are hidden?’. Display a large numeral.
Add one to the box, without showing the objects inside and ask children to show on their
fingers, ‘How many are there now?’ Then show how many are inside the box and count to
check.
