Counting Fingers and Toes


I'll tell you the truth, my little Ethan doesn't like wearing clothes!  Getting him dressed is often a bit of a struggle, as he'd be much happier just running around naked.  I started thinking that I need to come up with fun ways to get him dressed (I would love any other suggestions as well). So today we started playing peekaboo with hands and feet and then counting fingers and toes as they popped out the other side.

Ethan loved this!  It really made him giggle and distracted him from the fact that he was then wearing clothes!  We even sang some number songs, excellent for his Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy as we counted his fingers and toes.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
Once I caught a fish alive,
6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Then I let it go again.
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so,
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right.
