The Winter Olympics are done for another 4 years and we’re trying to ease our way back into our regular routine of homeschooling and having fun without the television being on all day. But that transition can sometimes be a tough one to make as it doesn’t take long to get used to the distraction of the TV and slide into bad viewing habits. One way we’re tackling this task is to make our learning fun again! This week we’re focussing on math games for kids. If you’re looking for ideas to keep the troops fed in the early hours, check out last week’s Mom’s Library where I featured morning munchies.
Math games for kids
Where Imagination Grows has a nifty use for those old bar shooter test tubes by turning them into a colourful counting activity.
Sow Sprout Play has a tactile pom pom counting game using things they already had around the house.
Fantastic Fun and Learning has made a simple and effective number line with a few activities to go along with it.
Powerful Mothering has a colourful and creative counting game that crosses ages as well as includes some arts and crafts and fine motor skills with their hedgehog.
3 Boys and a Dog has rounded up 29 cool math games for preschoolers. Drop by and I’m sure you’ll find a few to keep you busy!
Learning is Messy has a game for the older children that will bridge the Olympics/back to school transition easily. Learning some money skills with a home made hockey game, what could be more fun!
