Animal Math Games for Kids

We have a bucket full of these little rubbery colored animals.  At times I’ve wanted to throw them out since it seems that no matter how high I hide them, with Sylvia around, they end up all over the house anyway.  But they are great for counting games, color games, teaching organizing and categorizing and even science and nature.

Isabel helped me trace these circles onto paper and make up categories for Sylvia to sort.

  • colors
  • herbivore, carnivore, omnivore
  • no legs, four legs, six or more legs
  • air, land, sea

A recent goal of mine is to do more math with my children that is out of their text books.  This activity counts!  (notice the no pants, we have a slightly less strict dress code here than your average school.)
