Frog Math Games
Here are 10 fun Frog Math Games you can play with your child to help them practice some of their math skills.
These can be played with plastic frogs and construction paper lily pads. If you prefer, there is a link at the end of this article to a printable version with lily pads and frogs on our Etsy store.
1. Counting Frogs Line up the frogs and have your child count them. Add more as they are ready.
2. Counting Lily Pad
Line up the lily pads in numerical order and let your child count them.
3. Counting Frogs for Lily Pads
Count out the right number of frogs for the number on each lily pad.
4. Number Hop
Scatter the lily pads around a room then call out a number. Your child then hops to the number you told them to find.
5. What Number Is It?
Scatter the lily pads around a room then have your child hop to a lily pad and tell you what number it is.
6. Lily Pads in Numerical Order
Shuffle the lily pads then let your child lay them out in numerical order.
7. Before and After Numbers Game
Put down a lily pad and let your child tell you the number that comes before and after it.
8. What Number is Missing?
Line up the lily pads in numerical order. Have your child shut their eyes and then you take away a card. Let them guess what number is missing.
9. More or Less Game
Set up a lily pad with the wrong number of frogs on it. Ask your child to tell you if they need more or less frogs to match that number.
10 . Adding and Subtracting
Start with frogs on two of the lily pads. Then make up a short story, for example: 2 frogs are on this lily pad and they see 1 frog, over here all by himself. They all want to play together. What lily pad would they have to move to?
Note: You can give them a hint like: If there are 2 frogs here plus 1 more, how many frogs are there, what is 2+1? Let them count the frogs if they need to.
