# Multiplication Games for Kids

Multiplication games for kids are a big hit with students, parents, and teachers. For the average student, math can either be boring or difficult. Math multiplication games to the rescue!

Monkeying Around With Multiplication

Skill: Multiplication of 2 and 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers

Number of players: 2-4

Object of the game: Be the first player to reach the finish line by recognizing correct and incorrect answers.

Supplies:

• Copy of game board
• Playing piece for each player (different colored bits of papers, different coins, etc.)
• one standard die
• paper and pencil for each student

Preparation: Click to print a copy game board

To Play:

1. All players place their game piece on START. Players roll the die, and the person with the highest number begins the game.
2. The first player rolls the die and moves forward that number of spaces. Then she reads the line that matches the number she rolled.
3. If the line tells the player to do something (such as go back 2 spaces), the player follows the directions. If the line gives a math problem, the player writes the problem on her paper and solves it. For example, if the player rolled a two, she would move forward 2 spaces and solve 36 x 3 = 108. Then she tells if the answer on the game board is correct or incorrect.
4. Someone else checks her answer with the calculator. If the player is correct, she stays on that space until her next turn. If she is incorrect, she goes back to the space where she began her turn, and that turn is over.
5. Each player follows in the same manner.
6. The game ends when one player reaches END with an exact roll of the die or from a line of instructions
