Robot Math Activities
Kids love to play dice games and the challenge of completing puzzles. Try these printable activities to practice different basic skills.
This robot game makes learning fun! Print the robot math activity and collect small objects to cover the numbers such as buttons, gems, silver washers, or blocks. Roll the die. Cover the number that is rolled. Keep rolling until all of the numbers are covered. This dice game includes two sets of numbers so it makes for a slightly longer game. It is a great activity for practicing counting and number recognition.

- Match letter magnets to the cards.
