Math Games for Kids

Geo Board

Your children can use this geo board over and over again to make pictures and geometric designs.

What You'll Need:

  • White paper
  • Blunt scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • 10-inch square of one-inch-thick wood
  • 36 one-inch brass nails
  • Hammer
  • Assorted rubber bands

How to Make a Geo Board:

Step 1: Have your children cut a 10-inch square from a piece of paper. They should mark a matrix of dots about one inch apart on the paper. Then have them place the paper over the wood board.

Step 2: Your kids should push a pencil through the paper at each dot to mark the position of the nails. Have them hammer the nails about halfway in the board at each dot. Then they should connect rubber bands around the nails to make designs, geometric shapes, or letters on the board.

Step 3: Once your children are done, remove the rubber bands so they won't get stretched out.
