When playing this fun summer math game, your children will have the chance to practice and develop skills such as:

  • Counting skills – they’ll have to count the ice cream scoops carefully to ensure they are matching to the right number card
  • Number recognition – they’ll need to be able to recognize the numbers to match them up correctly
  • One to one correspondence – this important skill (trickier than you may think) is the ability to only touch and count an object of a set once
  • Fine motor skills – they will have to use a good pincer grip to pick up the cards
  • Hand-eye coordination – to ensure they can move and place the cards together
