Ladybirds and Dragonflies - Number Bond Ping Pong

A fun game you can play with you child anywhere!

This games will help your child recall all the different ways to make a Number Bond up to 10 and beyond. 


Adult 1 - Say to your child 'We are going to play Number Bonds to 6 Ping Pong'. You say a number eg 3.

Child 1 - They will need to say the number to make the number bond to 6 which is 3 because 3+3=6.

Continue with a different starting number which is 6 or below. 

Adult 1 says 4  - Child 1 says 2

Adult 1 says 6 - Child 1 says 0
