Hi! If you are looking for free printable math games for kids, you've come to the right place! My goal for this site is stock it full of cool math games. Math games for kids to enjoy as they learn.
I've loved math since I was a kid. And one of the best things the grown-ups around me did was let me play with it. My mum used to give me math toys and math games that were right for my age, but also instilled a sense of number, geometry, shape and symmetry. It's one of the best things she could have done to help me understand and love maths.
Children love to play, and they learn through playing. That's why I'm building this site. I'll be uploading more and more games, puzzles and toys to make, that help kids love math. You'll be able to make most of them with just your printer and maybe a few extra items. I'll give tips on how to use them in a classroom setting or at home. Most important, I'll explain why these games help kids love math, why they'll be learning more in hour of play than they possibly could in a whole day of drills.
Your kids - whether you're a parent or teacher - will learn, without even realising they are learning.
