Preschool Math Games

These games for children ages 3 to 6 years old are designed to be both simple to use and very engaging. Some are quick and use everyday materials; others use a game board and require more extended play. All can be repeated many times, and their difficulty can be decreased or increased to sustain challenge as children gain proficiency. The games engage children in problem solving, puzzling, and discussing strategies as they play, and they collectively focus on counting, operations, algebraic thinking, and geometry. The games are designed to promote children’s persistence, executive functions, and social-emotional skills.
