Looking for ways to make sure your child stays engaged throughout the Easter break? Try out some of these Easter-themed maths games.
The Easter break is a great opportunity for your child to practise some of the things that they’ve learnt throughout the Spring Term. There are many ways for you to help your child avoid learning loss, aside from ensuring that they continue to use Maths-Whizz for 30 to 90 minutes a week. Easter eggs, for example, lend themselves nicely to basic maths sums, so check out some ideas below and feel free to get creative!
Then why not invite a group of their friends over for some fun Easter maths games like the following Easter Egg Hunt?
Start by putting a number of small Easter Eggs into a basket. (It’s up to you to decide how much sugar you want a group of young children to access once the hunt is over!)
Ask one of the children to count how many eggs are in the basket and hide those eggs.
Ask all of the other children to look for the eggs, but stop them occasionally and get the first child to work out how many eggs are still missing, or if all of the eggs have been found.
Once all of the eggs have been found and added up, have more rounds with a different number of eggs in the basket and a different child each time.
For older children, try writing maths problems on the Easter Egg wrappers (or putting maths problems inside plastic eggs). The children should then work in teams to find the eggs and solve the maths problems together. The team that solves the most maths problems wins!
For more ideas on how to keep your child engaged and prevent learning loss over the Easter break, take a look at the Easter section on Activity Village.
