Multiplication can be hard to memorize, especially if kids don’t find it fun. In this post, we give you different games that you can use to make learning multiplication fun!

Number dash

The goal of Number Dash is to get to the finish by completing multiplication problems. A player rolls a die and moves that many spaces along the path. They then solve the problem. If they get it right, they stay on that space. If they get it wrong, they go back to their previous space. Our first version goes up to multiplying by 12.

If you need a slightly easier version of Number Dash, we’ve also made one that stays in the lower digits. This will be better for younger players who haven’t gotten through all their multiplication table yet!

Multiplication Squares

Multiplication squares is like the game dots-and-boxes, but incorporates learning multiplication! Similarly to On a Roll, players roll two dice and multiple them together. Then you find the product on the board, and draw one line above or next to it. When a box is completed, the player colors it in. For a competition, the player with the most boxes at the end of the game wins!
