A game to practice counting up or counting down from any number.
- Have your child face you and start counting forward from a number you choose between 1 and 10.
- When you clap once, participants stop counting, jump around and facing back, start counting down from the number they are at.
- When you clap again, they jump around to face you again and count up from the number they are at.
- Continue claps to change the direction several times.
To end the activity, clap three times.
After the numbers up to 10 are mastered, choose a number up to 20. Add numbers each time a level of 10 is mastered.
