Can you count to number 8?

Chinese Money Envelopes.
To celebrate Chinese New Year, people give each other lucky red envelopes containing money.
Could you make a lucky envelope?
Ask your grown-up if they have an envelope you can use.
You could colour it in red and maybe do some Chinese writing on it, or draw a picture of one of the animals from the story.
Now ask your grown-up if you could please have some 1p coins to put inside it.
How many coins are you going to put in your envelope?
Practise counting out different amounts of 1p coins up to 10p altogether.
Have a look around your living room.
What is on the floor?
What is under the table?
What is next to the vase?
What is in the bowl?
What is behind the chair?

Think back to the animals in the race.
The rat was 1st-he was the winner!
The pig was 12th- he was last
The tiger came 3rd, and the rooster was 10th.
Can you put some of your toys in a line?
Can you tell your grown-up which is 1st, which is 3rd, which is 7th etc.
