Make your own Counting Hedgehogs (Numberhogs) - Simple Maths Play for Preschoolers

These Numberhogs are a fun & simple counting activity, & can help develop fine motor skills too!



To make our hedgehogs or 'Numberhogs' I drew a simple hedgehog body shape (minus the prickles) on coloured card, we drew on the numbers, laminated each one, & added googly eyes.
I made up a set of 10 of these Numberhogs for Minnie to explore.




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!
