Making Math Fun: 15 Activities & Game to Play with Your Kids!

Now that we’re back in the swing of things, I thought I would post all these ideas again. I shared them originally in my series about “How to Start Homeschooling,” but all of these are fun for seasoned homeschoolers too!!

Math can be so fun!  What can you do to make math come alive?  Go into detail about measuring cups when you bake and cook.  Incorporate math in the grocery store. For example, estimate the total or figure out the sale price if an item is 10% off. Play games outdoors that test math facts.  Play board games and card games.

Here are some of the math activities we’ve enjoyed in our homeschool:
