MAKE YOUR OWN MATH GAMES: EGG-O!

Hands-on math games are a great way to add variety to your child’s education.

Not to mention a fun way to practice math facts! Egg-O is a quick game you can use to practice addition, subtraction, or multiplication facts.

To Make The Game:

Using an old egg carton, write a number on the bottom of each cup. I printed out simple instructions and glued them to the inside.

To Play The Game:

Place two buttons inside the carton, close the lid, and shake!

Open the lid & either add, subtract (starting with the bigger number), or multiply your two numbers.

Scoring Variations:

Addition: Players add their scores as they play. The first person to reach 100 wins!

Subtraction: Players begin with 100 points. Players subtract each difference from the 100 points. The first person to reach zero wins!

Multiplication: Players add their quotents as they play. The first person to reach 500 wins!

The instructions I glued on the inside of the lid:

Put two buttons in the carton & close the lid.

Shake, shake, shake!

Open the lid & look at the numbers your buttons land on.

Multiply your numbers!

Each player adds their scores as you play. The first person to reach 500 wins!
