Popular and Awesome Math Games That Actually Help Kids

We use Math-U-See as our math curriculum in our homeschool to teach all of our kids. While we use it everyday, I love adding hands on learning ideas to help the kids gain fluency in different math concepts. We love using board games, printable games, card games, and other hands on learning ideas to do this. Today I am going to share with you some of our favorite fun ways to teach kids math concepts using different math games we have purchased and loved over the years.

Some of our games were purchased years ago and there has been an update on the games, so they will look slightly different in the Amazon links then in our pictures. The new games are played the same way as the old ones are they just got an updated look to them. Other games we play regularly but haven’t taken pictures of them, and I have included them as well on our list. All of the games have an Amazon link for your convenience, since this is where we purchase all of our math games at the cheapest prices.
