This week we had a bucket of lego people and a die which I had stuck stickers to with + and - signs over the spots. The children could choose up to 5 characters from the bucket to start them off. They then took it in turns to throw the die and if they threw a + the could add a character to their stash and if a - had to give one up to go back in the bucket. Depending on age/stage we may play until first to ten, counting how many, and how many now you have added one/taken away one etc. on the way. It's an easy game and one if you have a lot of counting/sorting resources or themed items you can do easily, and the children can play without an adult if they are able enough, or have a quick game with a parent before they leave in the morning.
