Sum Fun: 3 Addition Adventures for Home Learners & After-School Stars! | Galaxy-Boy Delivery

We all know that sometimes math can seem awful to our kiddos. But guess what? It doesn't have to be! Whether you're a homeschooling superstar or just looking for some after-school enrichment, we have three absolutely delightful activities that make learning addition feel like playtime. Because, honestly, who says learning can't be fun?

  1. Foor Store Game-Time: ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿž๐Ÿซ Set up a little "food store" at home using toys, canned goods, or even empty boxes. Label each item with a price. Give your little ones a shopping list and a set amount of play money. As they โ€œshop,โ€ they'll need to add up their items!

  2. Baking Math: ๐Ÿช๐Ÿง Whip out those aprons and chef hats, because we're headed to the kitchen! Pick a simple recipe, preferably one with a lot of ingredients (think cookies). As you measure out the ingredients, task your kiddos with doubling or halving the recipe. It's a delicious way to practice addition!

  3. Nature Scavenger Hunt: ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ Who said math can't be outdoorsy? Head to your backyard or a local park with a list of things to find. For instance:

  • 3 leaves

  • 2 flowers

  • 4 pinecones

As they gather their finds, encourage your children to add up their totals. How many items did they collect in all? It's a fresh-air-filled way to incorporate math into a beautiful day!


With a sprinkle of creativity and a dash of enthusiasm, even the most math-reluctant kiddo can start seeing numbers in a brand-new light.
