This is a simple and super fun way to practice addition with J and his K2 friends in our playdates.
It is very easy to set up, you would need:
How to set up:
I use the toy blocks to build five “tunnels” and label them with numbers 1-5. I also build two “barriers” so to trap the ball from going everywhere.
How to play:
Each kid is given a ping pong ball and he/she can blow (or push) the ball into the tunnel 2 times. I record the numbers on the white board, and ask them to add the scores together.
The kids absolutely love the game. They love to blow the ball into the tunnels, and they are so eager to calculate their scores to see who wins at the end.
It is a great game to play with friends or families in playdate , gathering, and birthday party.
Learning is fun and inexpensive.
