I am determined to do more 10 frames activities with my kids because it provides a perfect visual basis for learning numbers, counting, subitizing, adding, and subtracting and the frame stays the same so keeping continuity between activities can help make learning easier (instead of always having to learn the rules of a new activity). Since Legos are always a big hit in my house I thought we would add them into our 10 frames activities to keep the kids learning while they played with toys–so grab a bucket of Legos and let’s get math time started!

Supplies:

Legos (We like this set of LEGO DUPLO BLOCKS-affiliate link because they are easy for the kids to manipulate–don’t want to cause frustration)

We used the 10 frames chart (available to download towards the end of this post)

Dice

Activities Ideas to Try: 

Empty and Full

  • Put one Lego on each frame. Have child roll a die and remove a certain amount of Legos. Count the empty frames and then count the full frames.

Colors and Number Recognition

Build and Stack

  • Have the child build stacks with the correct number of Legos on each frame.  (You may need to break the tall stacks down into a stack of 5 and put the remaining Legos in a second stack).

The first time we did this activity Little Dragon sat just long enough to make it through numbers 1-5 which was awesome. Basically, go at your child’s pace and have fun!
