As a parent, you are your child's first teacher and there are tons of things that you can teach him;

teaching numbers is super important and these ways to teach a toddler numbers will help him become a mini-mathematician.

So many kids are resistant to learning numbers (I know I was) and that may just be because they aren't being taught in a fun way.

Make the introduction to math fun with these awesome ways to teach a toddler numbers.

1. Number Matching

One of the many fun ways to teach a toddler numbers is with a number matching game.

Write out numbers on two sets of index cards and have your child match the numbers together.

Make sure to name the numbers as he matches them.

You can also write out numbers on one set and draw an amount of items that corresponds to each number (2 dots or 3 ice cream cones) and have your child match the picture card to the number card.

2. Make Pictures

One of the things that we love doing in my house is making number pictures.

I write a number on a piece of paper and my little guy creates a picture that corresponds to it.

So, if I draw the number 1, he draws one circle, or sticks one sticker on the piece of paper.2

We've assembled our number pictures into number books!

3. Number Hop

On a nice day, head outside and write numbers on the ground with sidewalk chalk.

Have your little guy jump from number to number, saying each one's name as he lands on them.

4. Number Jive

Let your little one do a little jive for the numbers.

When you say a number, your little guy can do a dance that involves a particular movement that number of times.

For instance, if you say 3, he can shake his hips thee times.
