Hi everyone! Are you looking for a fun way to teach addition to your children that doesn’t involve flashcards in the typical way? Well, look no further! I created this fun game called “Add It!” and I wanted to share it with you all today!
(Note: I edited the game board so it now goes left to right. This picture is opposite what the board looks like in the download. Thanks for the suggestion Gwendolyn, that does make more sense!)
How to play the game:
- Take an addition flashcard and place it on the game board.
- Using any manipulative of your choice, place the correct amount
of objects into the top green box based on the top number on the
- Place the correct amount of objects into the middle yellow box
based on the bottom number on the addition flashcard.
- Using the “Scoop”, scoop all of the objects from the green box &
the yellow box, down into the blue box.
- Count the total of objects and place the correct number card
onto the bottom of the addition flashcard.
- Pick a new card and play again!
The download includes:
- Addition flashcards for numbers 0-9 (ie: 1+1, 1+2, 1+3…1+9)
- 1-20 answer number cards
- A game board
- 4 “Add It” scoops (I glued mine to cardboard then cut them out to make them more durable.)

Hope you have fun!
Just what I was looking for! My daughter will LOVE it! Thanx!
This looks like a terrific game! Unfortunately when I try to download it, the new tab it opens is blank. 🙁
Thank you, for creating and sharing this awesome Add-it game. Perfect way to introduce my 3 year old Granddaughters to math.
Found via pinterest. Very cool idea. Thank you for sharing your talent and the time it took. I hate the idea of so much STUFF all the time and since I only have two kids I think I might have a sheet of problems written on a piece of paper and have them copy the problem with dry erase markers and then solve. If I were back in the classroom DEFINITELY the set, but I confess that I sometimes get a bit carried away with cute things like this and then end up with so much stuff and feel wasteful. Hope you don’t mind me making the slight modification for personal use. Look forward to more of your wonderful ideas.
Love it! Thanks
This looks great! Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for this! We are working on addition now, so this will help out a lot.
I will use this game with my pupils in Sweden. Thanks!
This is FANTASTIC…! Do you have a game for subtraction??? Thank you, Karen
I am very thankful for all that you do. Your kids are so lucky to have such an awesome mom!
