This fun maths activity was entirely Granny's idea so she has to take all the credit, although I have seen something similar at Kids Activities Blog.
First of all Granny gave Bud a box of loose change, mostly one and two piece coins. I gave Bud a piece of paper for each and we started to sort them.
Soon we had two heaped piles of coins.
So, next up we counted the coins. We started counting the coins, but as Bud can't get too far beyond 20 we started to pile them into groups of 5 and then counted the piles. We did the same for the two pence pieces and then I added them up.
I think Bud enjoyed this activity as he's since told me he wants to be a banker!
