My daughter is always getting the days of the week mixed up so I’ve knocked up this cute little pin-board hanger to help her get to grips with it.

I chose to use elephants cos they’re pretty neat but naturally you can use anything. Also, the dry-wipe aspect of this chart can be used for a multitude of things such as re-useable sticker keepers for example, so feel free to take the basic idea and run with it!

What You Need:

  • 2 Sheets of coloured card
  • White Paper
  • Felt-Tip Pens
  • Elephant (or other) Cut-Out Template
  • Days of the Week List (see below)
  • Laminator
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Sticky Back Velcro
  • White Board Pen

How to Make the Chart:

  • Cut out 7 Elephants (or whatever you are using) and get your kids to colour them in

(Feel free to use this template from Little Birdie Secret – Click the image to open in a new window for a printable version.)

  • Add a day of the week to each one and laminate them, trimming the excess afterwards.

(Click the image to open a printable template you can cut out in a new window)

  • Then write on a piece of A4 card along the top; “Today is…”
  • Use one of your elephants to measure the size of the gap and underneath you can write “What Shall We Do?” – or something to that extent.

  • Laminate this sheet
  • Laminate another sheet of card that’s been cut in half (this is the piece you will “park” your spare elephants.

  • Using a hole punch and your string attach a hanging hook to the top and attach the two pieces of card together at the bottom.

Pop your sticky back velcro patches on the back of your elephants and the other sides one on the top sheet where the present day elephant will be fastened and six on the bottom piece of card for the rest.

Each day you can discuss with your child what day it is and try to identify the correct corresponding elephant which will then be stuck to the main piece of the card. You can then use a white board pen to write that day’s activities and plans. As the sheet is laminated you can wipe this clean for the next day.

Flying Fish!

Versatile and fun fish to help your child with number recognition.

What You Need:

  • Colourful Card
  • Pencil
  • Felt Tip Pens
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch

Optional:

  • Paperclips
  • Small Magnet
  • Laminator

Create your own fish template to draw around or use the ones below (click on each image to open a new printable version)

Cut out 10 fish, using the felt tip pens write numbers 1 to 10 on them. Include the corresponding amount of spots if you like.

Get your kids to colour them in.

Suggestion: Sequins and other such bits and pieces glued on would look great on these aswell.

If you have a laminator to make the fish more durable you could laminate them – it also creates a nice shiny finish. It’s not necessary if you cannot get hold of one however.

Punch a hole in the top of each fish.

Once the fish are made you can attach a paper clip to each one and using a small magnet tied to a piece of string play number fishing games.

You can use the fish in conjunction with rhymes to help your child with number recognition:

One, Two, Three, Four, Five,
Once I  caught a fish alive.
Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten,
Then I threw it back again.
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right!

For my daughter’s bedroom, I strung the fish together to create this fun and lively fishy bunting.
