Use kindergarten math activities and fun games to get your child fluent in number skills with unique tips from one of the very few homeschooling families taught at home myself.
We loved playing math games and adding numbers into our daily homeschool activities; it was one of the highlights of our day.
I think the photo gives a clue! We borrowed the cash till from the Toy Library so many times to use in homeschooling we ended up buying one!
If you aren't lucky enough to have a Toy Library near you, all the homeschooling kindergarten math games and activities I suggest can be easily found in toy stores, thrift shops or garage sales.
You don't have to have a cash till to enjoy playing shop; this is one of those fun math activities which has enduring appeal. All children love playing at being big people and going to the shops and buying your favorite things is certainly a lot of fun!
"Abby is setting up the toys to play 'shops' again. They love this game and it really helps them learn all about the Canadian currency x"

Monica has found this great DIY cash till you can make yourself:
"We saw this video and my husband made one like this for my children, they are very interested in coins right now and they have a cash register and a piggy bank, so they were excited to try this.
They took the coins out of their piggy bank and put them in the sorting machine and then in the cash register and played for hours with it.
It took two tries for him to do it for the coins we wanted to sort, so be careful how you make the holes."
