Keep It Up


The common game is made a little trickier by the addition of, well, um addition!

What you need:

  • Balloons, blown up
  • Two dice

This is an outdoor or indoor game for one or more children. the type of maths you choose will depend on the level of your child.

 How to play:

  1. Roll the dice. Add the numbers together and that’s the number of times the child needs to hit the balloon to keep it from hitting the floor.
  2. On the next turn the child must subtract the smallest number from the largest number to get the number of hits they get.
  3. On other turns use multiplication or division or back to addition and subtraction.
