Egg carton toss — They threw two pom-poms into the
egg carton and added the numbers together. They
could use the abacus if they wanted.
Math Monster– (ie. Freeze Tag!) Give the child the
ANSWER and spread the equations around the back yard.
You are the Monster trying to freeze them before they
get the correct answer. If you tag them and they think
they have the right answer, they check it with you.
If they are correct they are free, if not they are frozen
until another player sets them free. We play this with
my 3 year old daughter who has to find a number
(1 through 12) and tell the Math Monster what number
she has. The Math Monster won if she froze all players.
