Game: Shut the Box! (Or: How to Help Your Child Learn Math Facts)

I decided I’d introduce you all to one of the math games we play called “Shut the Box”. We actually use a version called “Double Shutter”. But I also talked about how you can make your own, using a pen, two dice, and index cards.

I use the Amazon Associates (affiliate) program, but the main reason I link there is because that’s usually where I find the best prices and we have a prime account, so when I buy from them, I don’t have to pay shipping. I also wanted to be able to show a few different versions without having to come up with my own pictures.

This version looks really neat:

(As an aside: I’ve found that the quickest way to get my cats’ attention is to try to record a video.)
