Practice Addition with a Princess Math Game

My Kindergartner has just started learning about addition and subtraction.

I wanted to do something at home that would be fun and would also reinforce what she is learning in school.

So, I took one of her favorite things and turned it into a math activity so we could practice addition, Princess math game.

How to create your princess math game

To create the game, I took a piece of pink paper and a black marker.

I drew two tiaras with a plus sign in between.

Underneath, I drew boxes for writing the numbers.

I then laminated the paper so that we could use a dry-erase marker. (This is the laminator I use.)

It was a very simple set up for a game that has been played with again and again.

How to play

To play, I write an addition problem below the tiaras.

My daughter then used the correct number of beads to decorate her tiara.

Then, she counted the jewels to find her correct answer. Easy and fun!

So far our simple princess math game has gotten high marks from my kindergartner.

It’s fun, she’s learning, and enjoying the challenge.

In fact, she told me that I was giving her too easy of problems and she wanted harder ones. Score! I love that my girl likes to be challenged!

What are your kids learning in school now? What do you do at home to try and reinforce their learning?
