My daughter loves these and it’s a fun way to get them counting as they look for the correct answer. It also doesn’t tie them to worksheets and makes math more fun.
While my kids do enjoy worksheets, sometimes we just like to play around with math blocks and manipulatives and talk through our math problems. It’s a nice way to change things up once in a while to keep math fresh.

Back to School Addition Puzzles Supplies
- Printer (I have this one)
- Laminator (optional)
Print these puzzles out onto paper or cardstock for better durability. Cut them out and you can laminate them if you’d like to continue to reuse them. Mix them all up and have your child match up the correct answer.
Laminating them is always a great idea because then you can pack them in your purse and have them handy for car rides, waiting rooms or other times when your little one may need or want something to do. Laminating keeps them tear free and they’ll last so much longer that way!
Recommended Back To School Books
To extend this activity, read your favorite back to school book to get your kids mentally ready for school. I like to have the kids help set up their books and schools supplies so they know where everything is located.

Have them prepare some practice school lunches, my kids think it’s fun to pretend they’re going to school, we’re homeschoolers so we just take the food to eat outside, lol.
Don’t let the summer slide take over and get your kids ready for math before they return back to their classes.
