Make your own Numberhogs - Maths play with Hedgehogs

These Numberhogs make a fun & simple counting activity, & encourage fine motor skills too!
 

To make our hedgehogs or 'Numberhogs' I drew a simple hedgehog body shape (minus the prickles) on coloured card, added the numbers with a marker pen, laminated each one, & added googly eyes.
 
I made up a set of 10 hedgehogs.
 
 
 
I then found some clothes pegs to use as prickles.
 
 
Then all you need is a clever little person to match the number of pegs (prickles) to the number on the hedgehog!
 
 
They've been a great success in our house, hope you have fun with them too!
