|FUN|number bottle tops

At the moment, T is learning his numbers, not saying them, he's been able to do that for ages and now does simple addition and subtraction too, we're now learning to recognise numbers and associate those numbers to values.

I'm always looking for a quick recycle project and if I can create one that helps T with his learning, all the better!  For this quick project I used regular beer bottle tops, it goes without saying that this isn't really suitable for small children because there can be sharp edges but there was a reason I wanted to use these instead of milk bottle tops.

I used the number stickers from our fab Easter #kidsstickerswap sponsor stickerstocker.com they are great value at £1 including a pocket reward chart! What a bargain, and they offer 10% off of your first order and... There is a huge sale on right now, so head on over and grab some bargains (this isn't part of our 'deal' I just think they are great!) I'm going to be placing an order for some educational toys soon! 

I have this idea in my head to extend this game and use a magnet 'fishing line' to fish for numbers and then match them up, which is why it's useful they are beer bottle tops and not plastic ones! 

Do you have any great ways to teach children numbers, I'd love some tips if you have some!



  1. This looks like a great idea - I've bookmarked it for when Sprog is a bit bigger! #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  2. Great idea. Need to do more number stuff with Youngest.

    1. Thanks, it's something I'm afraid I've neglected a bit :( x

  3. Love a bit of recycling! Great idea, i'll have to book mark for when Luke is a bit older. He has a magnetic fishing rod for getting his ocean themed puzzle bits out of the board. He can get them out, but it's a really hard puzzle and can't find the right places for the animals. Especially as whales and sharks and dolphins all look quite similar!! Ray xx

  4. Great idea love this #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  5. What a fab idea!! Lamb has started recognising numbers too, well number 2 at least! And he can now count to 9 (sometimes!) so I definitely need to start doing learning games with him to encourage him to learn more. Love this post x

  6. These look great, another fab idea Leandra x

  7. What a great idea.!!. These kind of activities must be thought to toddlers,these kind of activities encourages kids to learn and understand things better.
