Apple Tree Math Game

2 Oct

In an effort to decorate our house with apples, and have a little fun with numbers at the same time, we create this Apple Tree Math Game.

To do so,  cut out apple shapes, then let your kids color them in as they see fit.

Have the kids write the numbers 0 – 9 on the various apples.

Then hang the apples on a large tree

At this point we then made a game out of our apple tree.

For my 3yr old daughter, I asked her to find the various numbers on the tree.

For my 6yr old, I asked him math questions {what is 3 + 5 =?} and he would look for the answer on the tree.

This apple tree math game can become as easy or hard as you desire.

Additional ideas:

  • write higher number apples for more complex math equations.
  • create apples with +, -, x, ÷ then let your kids create their own math equations on the tree
  • let the kids ask each other math problems {instead of the teacher/parent}
