A quick cooperative number game

 
Finn and I played a fun game today following one of those increasingly rare strikes of inspiration!
 
This is a game that includes movement, memory, number recognition, speed and cooperation.
 
You will need:
 
- a timer (I used my phone)
- two sets of numeral cards
 
 Preparation:
 
One set of cards remains at one end of the house (downstairs for example), mixed up and face down. The other set is placed at the other end of the house (upstairs for us), face up, in a row. 
 
 

You and your child play together to beat the timer. Set the timer to 5 minutes. Both of you sit by the scattered pile of face down number cards. Pick one each, trace it, and race to the other end of the house as fast as you can to get the matching one! You are not allowed to bring the card you turned over with you, you have to remember it. When you get back downstairs, place the two matching cards together and turn over a new number. Continue in this way until all the cards have been matched and you have beaten the timer!

Excitement guaranteed! (not recommended right before bedtime)
