This is a great playground math game that would be perfect for any education setting. It is an engaging way to break up the day! You can tailor this game to any skill level or age. It can range from number recognition to multiplication.
I’m a big proponent of taking learning outside whenever possible! Everything seems to sink in and promote memory and recognition. This is a great playground math game, especially for those wiggly kids. :) Think of it as a cross between hopscotch and a board game. It is also another one that you can tailor to any age!
Kids are so curious about money! It is one more aspect of math that is important for them to learn. This Montessori money pack teaches how to count money, the value of money, and what it all means. Add in some chore charts and your kids will be on their way to making money and counting it on their own. :)
There is a lot of opportunity in the way you could play this game! Instead of graham crackers, you could use beads, legos, rocks, leaves, or anything else you have available! I love the math card! It is simple and perfectly set up to allow for learning math in a variety of ways.
Even over the summer you can be working on those learning skills and play fun math games! I guarantee this one will be a hit! The trampoline can be a place for hours of play. This active time telling math game will be a fun way to change up your daily routine.
This game is an awesome one for those quiet rainy days or a peaceful morning math session! Download the game board and then you will find multiple variations of the game for different skill levels! With wild cards and being sent to jail, it is a super game for kids!
This preschool math game is so simple and cute! I can imagine the little ones getting really into this imaginative gardening math game!

My boys love legos! They are always creating something new with them! This lego fraction game is a fun math game for your classroom or as a homework helper. Legos happen to be the perfect free math tool since most kids have them on hand! See what else you can do with them!
Lu Lu Dice is a traditional Hawaiian game of chance that has a little math snuck in as well! It is a fun math game that makes a great boredom buster! Next time your kids say they are bored bring out this game and see what they think!
