video play icon

This wiki has been updated 24 times since it was first published in July of 2019. Learning math skills is critically important, even when kids are very young. The challenge is keeping little ones engaged long enough to soak up the information, which is why playing games can be a valuable part of any educational curriculum. These selections are geared toward kindergartners, but many can be modified to be either more or less advanced, depending on your child's needs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

July 11, 2019:

Given that it's impossible for us to know each individual child's skill level, we included options that are both remedial and advanced on this list. A few of the models here are just as useful for younger children, and can give them a leg up on their classmates by the time they actually start school. Others can have their difficulty levels ratcheted up to remain challenging as your child advances.

One unavoidable fact of categories like this is that every single game will only be as useful as you make it. To that end, we prioritized fun and replay value in our rankings, with the belief that a child who enjoys playing will learn more as a result of both their enthusiasm and the repetition of exercises.

Even the most entertaining game in the world will grow tedious eventually, though. While cycling through multiple titles is one way to keep things fresh, you might also consider pairing them with a STEM toy or two. This allows them to translate their newfound skills to a different arena, deepening their understanding and, most importantly, keeping them out of your hair for an hour or two.
