11 Everyday Ways to Learn Math While Having Fun

Errand Fun


The next time you take your child with you while you run errands, turn it into a learning activity.

Calculating time and mileage is a fun way for your child to pass the time in the car. For example, if the grocery store is three miles away, how long does he think it will take you to get there?

If you have several errands to run, ask you child how far away he thinks each destination is from the other, and then clock it to see how close his guess is.

Another fun car game is to use the numbers on license plates as an addition and subtraction lesson. Ask your child to add or subtract all the numbers he sees on the license plates you pass.

Not only will he be learning math while you get your errands done, keeping him occupied will help keep any car meltdowns at bay, too.
