3 Math Ice Cream Games (printable)

I created these 3 Math Ice Cream Games to compliment our love of ice cream and sneak in a little learning too. Three different games for different age groups. Download, cut, and play!

If I could eat ice cream every day in the Summer I would and of course my kids would too!

Lately, I’ve been adding a new flavor of International Delight creamer to my coffee, Coldstone Creamery ™Hot for Cookie ™, for an ice cream flavored treat.

For the kids? Ice cream games!

Now YOU can sit back, sip your coffee, and let your kids have fun learning with one of these 3 ice cream games.
