  • Counting a set number of items, then rearrange them and count again
  • Puzzles, rubrics cubes or anything that requires your child to rotate, move and fit objects together will develop spatial reasoning
  • Games:  board games with dice help children with addition and subtraction
  • Interlocking cubes, building blocks, kits for making objects are good for developing spatial reasoning
  • Patterns: look for patterns wherever you go, nature is full of them
