New Year Numbers

Familiarise younger children with the "numbers" for the New Year with this fun textured number craft.

2015 New Year Numbers

You will need:

A4 card
PVA (white) glue
Dried beans, lentils, rice, kitchen foil, fabric, cotton wool, sand etc


Draw, or print, a large number onto the sheet of card. Cover each number with glue and then stick on your chosen ‘texture’. Cover each number in a different material to get a range of textures. When the glue is dry, cut out the numbers.

You could make the numbers 0-9 in different textures to help children learn to recognise their numbers.
