Scavenger hunts 

Shape – examples - find three circles in the room, can you find different four sided shape, what object has the most sides/corners in your house.

Measures - find 5 objects and order them from longest to shortest, heaviest to lightest, Can you find an object and then the next object must be heavier, how many objects can you find?  Can you find three objects the same length/weight?

Yes/No Game

Think of a number or a shape and then the other person has to ask questions with a yes/no answer.  To make it harder you could only 5 questions?

Times Tables Stairs

A way to exercise and practise times tables.  When you go up or down stairs, chant the times tables.  For each step say the next number.  If they can walk normally up or down the stairs and say the tables, they know them really well.

First To 100

This simple game is perfect for car journeys or the 10 minutes before dinner, and it will get your children practising their maths skills in a fun and exciting way!

What you need to play:

A deck of playing cards

A sheet of paper

How to play:

Step 1: Shuffle a pack of cards and place face down. Each player takes one card and turns it over in front of them.

Step 2: Record the number on the card (Ace is worth 1 and picture cards are worth 10).

Step 3: Each player then takes a second card and adds the number to the first number, recording it on the paper.

Step 4: Keep taking cards until the first person reaches 100. They are the winner.




Game extension idea

A variation on this game can be to start at 100 and keep subtracting until someone gets down to zero.

For older children, instead of adding the cards together, they can be multiplied each time, with the winner being the first to reach 1000.


Multiplication Hopscotch

Everyone knows how to play hopscotch, but by introducing maths into the mix you can take this traditional playground game to the next level.

What you need to play:


How to play:

Step 1: Using chalk, draw out hopscotch squares on the ground and in each square, write either multiples of a number or multiplication facts.

Step 2: Each person then hop, skips and counts at the same time, which is a really good way of helping those multiplication tables stick.


The 21 Game

This is a fun strategy game, played with two or more players, who take it in turns to count up from 1.

Each player can call out one, two or three consecutive numbers, before it moves to the next player to carry on counting up.

The player who ends up saying ‘21’ is out of the game. The game then continues, counting back up from 1 to 21, until there is only one person left. They are the winner.
