My oldest is in the 3rd grade and we’ve been working through his multiplication tables. *I have discovered that I’m a little rusty myself with some of them. LOL.* While we have used some workbooks to practice them, he much prefers games {I do, too}. So I created some multiplication games for him that have been a huge hit at our house over the last few weeks. And today, I’m sharing them as a 3-part free pack with you {free download at the end of this post.}

### Multiplication Games for Kids

In these free packs, you’ll find multiplication flashcards for 1-12 times tables, which we used several different ways.

First, we just did a simple matching game, matching questions and products together.

Then, we played memory match with the same cards. When a question was turned over, such as 4×3, we said, “4 times 3 equals 12,” then turned over one more card to see if we had found our match. Go Fish could also be played with the cards. Or let kids make up their own multiplication games!

### Multiplication Roll & Bump!

If you’ve played our Word Bump! games, you’re familiar with the game of Bump! We played it multiplication-style.

Each player has a different color set of markers or some kind of small manipulative. We used transparent counters, but you could use candy pieces or different kinds of dried beans. You also need 2 dice and a game board. Game boards are included for 1-12 times tables, like the one you see above.

Players take turns rolling the two dice, adding the sums, then multiplying it by the number on the top of the game board. For example, if you are using the 4x game board and you rolled 6, you multiply 4×6 and cover the product of 24 with your color manipulative.

If a player rolls, adds, and multiplies and gets the same product, he can “bump” off your manipulative and place his own on the board. The person with the most of their kind of counter when all the products are covered {or after a predetermined about of time} is the winner.

### Multiplication Roll & Cover {For Individual Play}

If you don’t want to play with a partner or make it competitive, game boards can be used for individual multiplication play and practice, too!

I set our timer from our Scrabble Boggle game and ALuv’s goal was to roll and cover as many products as he could before the timer ran out. Once the timer ran out, he tried once more to see if he could beat his own record. Setting a timer on your phone or microwave could also be just as effective!

I love these! I’ve been using these for my older daughter. Thank you! Do you happen to have addition and subtraction flash cards like these?

thisreadingmama says

Thanks, Lori! I do not at this point, but may work on something like that in the future. 🙂

Madeline B says

I’m having a hard time printing out the flashcards – none of the numbers are printing, only the borders! Not sure what I can do to fix it. Can you please help? Thanks!

thisreadingmama says

Try right clicking on the download link and saving to your computer that way. Sometimes that helps.

My Norwegian students love these Cards too! 🙂 But in case you didn`t know, there`s a typing error in the 5x Cards: instead of 5×4 and 5×5, it says 4×4 and 4×5 🙂
