Do you know how many feet tall you are ( using your own feet )? This activity is great for preschoolers but could also be extended for older children too.
We investigated by drawing around our own feet, cutting them out and then working out how many of our own feet tall we were.
If you like this activity, you might also enjoy my easy maths games for kids.
