2. Practice Your Counting
For your littles who are learning their numbers, take a dice and a handful of birthday candles (other candles work great, too). Have your kiddo roll the dice and then count out as many candles as the number you rolled. For older kids learning arithmetic, use two dice and your kids can practice their addition.
