Please can you tell me where you get your wooden numbers from? Also, do you repaint them or do you now have a set in every colour?

Hi Victoria, they are plain wooden numbers from Hobbycraft. Think they are £2 for 2 sets, 0-9. I have kept some unfinished and then have painted the others ????

I am like a little kid in a candy shop looking through your amazing posts. I just started teaching 3 and 4 year olds in a US preschool, after teaching 5 year old kindergartners for 16 years. I love how I can teach these little ones through play and exploration and I have gotten so many great ideas from looking at your blog. I thought I had a lot of “stuff”, but I don’t even come close to what you have. Thank you for sharing your ideas.
