Today I’d like to introduce you to Numberbundle.

*Numberbundles are mathematical activity boxes supporting the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum for children aged 3-7. *

*They give you a comprehensive toolkit that includes the materials and discussion points you need to introduce and expand on the major themes from the mathematics curriculum, whilst spending fun, quality time with your child.*

Numberbundles are £16.99 per month (+£2.80 P&P) as a subscription service, or you can try out a box or buy as a gift for £21. You select the age group you’d like, and the boxes are then tailored to a theme and full of activities and tools to work on.

We have a preschool box and a Year 1 box, and what struck me is how perfect they are for their respective learning ages, and also how well activities from both boxes can be adapted and received by both of my kids. They enjoyed trying them together, though obviously Boo’s learning outcomes were at a higher level.

This is the Preschool Numberbundle…

Here’s the Y1 Numberbundle…

Each box comes with an overview of the learning theme and objectives along with instructions for several different tasks and the tools to complete them.

At the top of every leaflet are the learning objectives, tools needed that are within the Numberbundle box and any additional items you’ll need. I found that the additional items are things that you are very likely to already have in your house. Inside are the step by step instructions.

These are the Preschool Numberbundle tools included for this month…

The amount of activities and learning crammed into one of these boxes is impressive. There is so much here, it will definitely keep us entertained and learning for some time and they’ve been brilliant this week over half term as we’ve dipped into them when we’ve had a little time available.

Here’s an idea of one of the tasks that we have completed so far. The preschool box is focusing on Big and Small, so we had play dough mats in a little booklet where you need to complete the pictures by adding small ears, small dots, a big tail and so on….

The Numberbundles have got me trying different activities with the kids that I either wouldn’t have thought to do or would just never have got around to doing. Take the play dough mats, I’d spotted this kind of idea over on Pinterest and suspected the children would enjoy it, but I’d yet to get round to it. Now that I know how much they took from it, I will try more of the same with them as it was fun to see and do. We’ve also carried out a shiny coin experiment from Boo’s box which is something I knew about, but had not thought of showing the children and they absolutely loved it – the shiny coins were like magic to them!

Both Little Man and Boo have really enjoyed their Numberbundles, and we still have more to do with them. I like that they will give me a structure for things that I can be working on in the week with Little Man, and Boo is always enthusiastic about trying new ideas out when she’s home so she loves these. They are a fun way to learn.
