Draw a board game

Board games are great for developing Maths Skills.

Snakes and Ladders is a great game to play. You are counting all the time. You need to work out how many places you need to move forward, what number you need to throw to get to the biggest ladder, and what to avoid so you don’t slip down the snake.

Other board games that are good for building maths skills include Scrabble, where your child needs to add up the points for their word – including double and triple letter and word scores, Battleship, which helps them practise using coordinates and Monopoly which builds money skills.
