The Best Valentine's Math Game for Kids


The Best Valentine's Math Game for Kids
Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays of the year. It offers many ways for our children to practice developmental skills. This includes everything from practicing writing their names on Valentines to focusing on friendship skills.  In today's post, we'll work Valentine's Math into the equation!  This is a fun game to help children to practice their math and memory skills.  Thanks to Oriental Trading for sponsoring this post! You'll find the Valentine Supplies on the Oriental Trading Website.

Supplies

Directions
Setup
  1. Print stickers with a variety of even and odd numbers. Stick the numbers to the bottoms of the candy.  (Optional shortcut: If you want to leave some of the candies without stickers, then those pieces count as zero when the kids add the numbers.)
  2. Organize the candies on a table so that the numbers are face down.
  3. Allow each child to decorate a Mini Square Appetizer Bowl with the Red Washi Tape. The festive containers will hold their candies when they play the game.


Game Rules
  1. Each child picks up a piece of candy. The child with the largest number will play first. If there is a tie, those in the tie will pick up another piece of candy and the largest number breaks the tie.
  2. For each turn, select two pieces of candy and add the numbers.
    • If the numbers add to an even number, they get to keep the Valentine Pair and add it to their container.
    • If the numbers add to an odd number, they need to put them back.
  3. Repeat Step 2 for each child until all of the candy is gone.
  4. Give a cellophane gift bag to each child to secure their container of candy.
