Collect some real Autumn leaves with your child or print and cut out the Autumn leaves below. Place some leaves on the table and encourage your child to count them and point to the correct number to match the amount on the number line below. Use the numbers your child knows (0-3 / 0-5 and 0-10) only introduce one or two more numbers as a challenge for them and tell them the numbers they don't know yet and see if they can remember the new numbers next time. Your child can also hold up the correct amount of fingers to match the number.
