Printable Math Board Games for Kids
Whenever my son struggles with learning a new math concept, we switch focus to playing a board game. Board games seem to speak to him in a way that other methods of learning don’t.
These board games all follow the same idea and rules, but include different boards and cards for each of the math concepts.
The addition board game and the subtraction game each have fewer spaces on the board, making for a quicker and easier game for younger children, whereas the multiplication and division game boards are slightly longer.
How to play the printable math board games:
These math games each have a colored game board with a simple start and finish and the beginning and end of the path.
Play this as a cooperative game where all players reach the end before the pile of cards runs out, or make it a race to see who can get to the end first for the competitive children.
- Print the game boards here.
- All players choose game tokens (coins, bingo chips, mini figures, etc.) and begin on start.
- Taking turns, players draw a math fact card from the top of the pile and solve the equation out loud.
- If they answer correctly, they move the the color space that corresponds with the color on the fact card.
- Other players can check answers (a little extra math practice!).
- Continue moving until the end of the game board.
Additionally, the last page in the pack is blank playing cards. If you want to work on certain facts, like if your child needs brushing up on 8’s and 9’s in multiplication, you can write in those facts yourself.
What ages are these printable math board games for?
The addition board game is the simplest of the 4, and great for older preschoolers and Kindergarteners.
The subtraction board game is great for the K-2 age range.
The multiplication board game is great for 2-4 grades, and the division board game is good for grades 3 and up.
Of course, these are general guidelines based upon when children begin to learn these concepts in most school. Your children might be ready to learn these concepts earlier, or might not be ready for these at the above mentioned ages, and that’s ok too!
