repetition+++! and lots of fun (songs, activities - matching pairs of overturned cards like a memory game, numberbonds champions and compertitions). Any help?

There are only 11 pairs to learn
1+0
1+1 - 2+0
2+1 = 3+0
3+1 = 2+2 = 4+0
4+1 - 3+2 - 5+0
I usually use two bowls and 5 chocolate buttons
divide the buttons between the two bowls and record all facts for 5 then eat a button ...
