I can’t really believe it, but today is the last day in the 31 days of STEM activities for kids series.
We’ve had so much fun learning about science, technology, engineering, and finally math. Most of our experiments we did with both Bo (2) and Monkey (9), so the activities work for a wide range of ages and abilities. For even more fun, gather a few friends and complete the challenges together!
Today, we’re wrapping up math with a round-up of all of the math activities that we did this month. Enjoy!
6 Hands-On Math Projects for Kids
These hands-on math projects are easy, simple, and can be scaled to suit your child’s current learning level. Even older kids can have fun with these ideas and just might learn something new, too.
You can do math on a tablet or phone with these super-fun math apps for kids.
The pretend store was one of our favorite activities. All you need is some money, some food, and our free printable! We had the best time making art out of fractions. The possibilities are endless! The most abstract of our projects, the mobius strip activity was super-fun and almost like magic!Uno cards can be quite educational. We used ours to reinforce basic addition and subtraction skills. This game is fun for hours of play!
Of course there are endless amounts of dice games. We invented a dice game to help reinforce multiplication skills. We played this game for nearly an hour before we got bored!
