Hello summer, I know your kids are off for the summer but I’m sure you like to keep some of their math skills up. For those that are learning basic addition skills these summer addition puzzles are a wonderful way to practice math without it seeming like a chore.
Both of my boys had writing phobia, you know where they think their hands are going to fall off if they write more than 3 words, so I’d write down their math answers for them. This meant they could focus on their math and not worry about the act of writing.
Summer Addition Puzzles Supplies
Print out these puzzles onto paper or cardstock for more durability. Cut out the puzzles and you can laminate them if you’d like them to last. My daughter hates when her puzzles get bent and they don’t line up properly so I like to laminate them.
To extend this activity, you can add in your favorite summer books, head outdoors to play in the sand or work in the garden. Have some fun playing outdoors on your water slide or create a summer themed sensory bin with water beads.
