Subtraction Domino Game

Age: From 5.5 years old

Players: 2-4

To teach subtraction in a fun way.

Subtraction Dominos - each tile has subtraction problems on it (for example, 9- 5).

1. Distribute the cards evenly among the players.
2. The youngest start by matching the answers of subtraction problems (for example, match 3-2 to 1-0, since they are both equal to 1).
3. The one who is first to get rid of all of his/her dominoes wins. But if no one can go out, then the person with the fewest dominos left is the winner.


Additional Information:
We played this for the first time today during our WFMN. J (5Y10M6D) enjoyed it, can do the subtraction, but was overwhelmed with the number of cards he has on his hands. He needed help to find the right card. On hindsight, we each have too many cards.

It is also available from Amazon, but for older children (grade 4-6):
