Cool Math Games

This week’s It’s Playtime is all about math. We home-school and as we have added new kiddos to our family we ended our “school time” earlier than normal and I am looking for ways to ease back into a form of “catch-up” school time with some fun games. These activities were linked up to our weekly Kid’s meme in the past two weeks. They are perfect for helping our kids keep learning alive and refreshing their math skills. Thanks to Learning Ideas for inspiring today’s theme. I just LOVE her hopscotch in positive and negative numbers. That is brilliant. I have struggled incorporating negative numbers into our kids curriculum. Thanks Marcia – her site has tons of other ideas for learning for you to browse.

Cool math games
Other Cool Math Activities include:

Make stone dominoes. I love how the blog, Fairy and the Frog made a set of stones labled with both numbers and one with the amount.  Great for young learners.

Play number toss.  This game is super simple to make with an old egg carton.  Thanks for a versatile game, Kristina.

Go on a number hunt. Have your sheet of math problems and when your kids figure out the answer have them let you know by running to the number! A variation from the blog idea at Making Boys Men.

Playing Tic-Tac-Toe with negative versus even numbers – also from Learning Ideas.


What are some of your kids favorite math activities??

I would love to hear about them in the comments or on our facebook wall.   If you are looking for more math activities consider these Online Math Games, or using dod-to-dots to help your child learn addition, and we also have a flyswatter Math game that is easy to adapt to any type of math review.

From our partners:


  1. I am always looking for creative ways to play with math. Thank you for these suggestions!

  2. Thanks for featuring us and for your ideas of how we could use our number hunt again. Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the feature :-)

    • Now that I have the full assignment, I will inlcdue a bit of information about the educational value of this website. As I previously mentioned, this is not the most efficient way to learn. The educational value is that it is a fun way to learn and this may reach those that don’t like math. Furthermore, website is very inspirational especially if a school takes advantage of having the group come out to their school to sing. This inspiration is great when it is followed by some concrete math to reinforce what they learned by singing.

  4. Great to make Maths fun. I used to love maths, but know plenty of kids who need to see that maths can be fun too. This is a great set of activities and help!

    Thank you for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!

  8. Fine way of explaining, and fastidious post to obtain data on the topic of my presentation topic,
    which i am going to convey in university.

  9. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when
    new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.

    Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
