Roll & Add Googly Eye Monster Math Game for Kids

By 7:00 AM , , , ,

Ever since sharing last weeks See & Spray Game with a monster twist, I've been on a monster kick.  So today I am sharing another monster themed activity for you-- Googly Eye Monster Math Game and invitation to play.

Initially I thought that Little Sis would like to simply add an assortment of googly eyes to the monsters.. and she did do that, but it also occurred to me that we could turn it into a game by rolling a die and seeing who could get to ten first.  The game was loved by my 3 year and 7 year old, and my 22 month old loved just adding googly eyes to the monsters!

Preschool Math Game

For this activity, I pulled out my roll of contact paper, some paint and googly eye mix from CraftProjectIdeas, and a math die.

To prep the activity, I painted three monsters on the contact paper.  I tried using highlighter, but that didn't work.  And as we played and took off googly eyes, the paint did chip away a bit... but it worked for the time being.  {Obviously painting the contact paper isn't/ wasn't necessary, but I liked the colored monsters}.

To play the game with my 7 and 3 year old, we each chose a monster and then took turns rolling the die and added said number of googly eyes.  I had a mix of googly eyes, from large to very tiny-- so each monster had a look of his/her own ; )

It was a fun game with a sneaky fine motor twist!  Manipulating the googly eyes can be a tricky task, especially the tiny ones.  And once the game was over, little brother sprawled himself out on the table and started adding even more googly eyes to each monster!
Hope you enjoy some monster fun!
