Which number is missing?

Who can do it?

  • Children between 4 and 6 years old.


  • Cards with numbers (square papers with numbers from 1 to 10), markers.

How do we do it?

  • Invite the kid to play with numbers.
  • Hand him/her all the cards and ask him/her to put them in order from 1 to 10, placing them one beside the other.
  • Ask the kid to count the cards out loud and then ask him/her to close his/her eyes. 
  • Pick one random card and then ask the kid: Which one is missing?
  •  Evaluate if it is necessary to play the first time just using the cards from 1 to 5, and then add the ones from 6 to 10. 
  • If you want to add more difficulty to the game, you can change the order of some numbers and ask: Which numbers are not at their place?
