Here's a fun game that will keep your kids busy and talking about math this summer. Played like bingo but with a scavenger hunt twist, kids race around the house finding items on the board. The first to get 5-in-a-row wins! If your kids want to be challenged, have them find all the items on the board. For even more fun, and to keep the learning going, have them create a board for you to play.
