6 Amazing Math Games
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m always on the hunt for creative and fun math resources. Our family loves to play games, and so it will come as no surprise that we have a bunch of favorite math games! Today, I’m going to share our family’s favorites and then I’d love to hear yours!
Fantastic math games for your homeschool
Here are a few of our family’s favorite math games. Is your family’s favorite math game listed here?
Sumoku is a crossword-style math game; a mathy and brilliantly-colored math game that will remind you of Bananagrams… but with numbers!
We LOVE this game. It is so versatile! Count-Down is for 2-4 players and teaches math skills that grow with your child. Whether you need to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division, Count Down is the game for you. Your children will have those math facts down in no time flat!
Do you guys remember playing Twenty-Four as a kid? I sure do! I won it, eons ago, during a Yankee Swap. Twenty-Four travels easily and is a great way to practice those math facts in a fun way, and on the go. The game offers three levels of challenge so it can grow with your family.
Clumsy Thief is an award-winning, fun, easy-to-learn, quick-to-play, fast-paced math facts game. Your children will be so caught up in the action that they won’t even realize they are learning their math facts. Warning: this game is addictive and your children will request to play it over and over and over again!
I love this game because you can modify it for younger players. So, for Seuss (3.5 years), we roll the dice and let him count the dots to get the total. For T (5.5 years), we roll several dice and have her add the numbers together. For Leo, we roll the target dice and then he attempts to reach a target number with the other dice. So many variations in an easy-to-travel pouch! If you like Math Dice, Jr., be sure to check out ThinkFun’s other Math Dice, including Math Dice Chase!
I am a proud Prime Club Kickstarter supporter and eagerly awaited its arrival last year. This is a fantastic mathematical game, especially for the visual learners in your life. Young children learning addition will love this game, as will the adults in their life as the game offers a strategic twist.
