Fun Learning

Sensory Games: Counting with Even and Odd

Even and Odd numbers can sometimes be confusing when you’ve never even heard the term before, especially to a five year old. Here’s a fun and easy way to learn even/odd number without breaking the bank.

Since Summer is in full swing at our house and we’re already starting to get bored. Keeping a 5 year old entertained has been proven to be quite the challenge and we still have another month to go before school starts back. With that being said, this momma needed to start getting creative coming up with fun activities for him that is also beneficial.

An Even/Odd number game

Using old color card swatches from Sherwin Williams, I numbered the cards with odd numbers spacing them so I had room to add my Velcro tape for placing the even numbers when it came time. Considering, this is the first time I’ve introduced Tripp to even/odd numbers, I wanted to keep it simple so I started with numbers 1-20.

Here’s how I did it by using the follow tools to create bright, sturdy game cards that the kids are sure to love!

What you will need for this project:

  1. Color Cards (from your local paint store)
  2. Velcro tape
  3. Scissors
  4. Sharpie Markers

Just as easy as it was to make, so is the concept of the game: Simply replace the even numbers back in the order they correctly go. Not only are you teaching your child the difference in even/odd numbers but how to take turns as well. This is a great group activity as well as solo.
