Math games for kids: Uno Flip for mental maths times tables and equations

So much of mastering basic math facts comes down to revision. Making that revision fun and engaging has always been important to me – as both a teacher and a parent. Which is exactly what led us to playing this simple math game – we call it Uno Flip!

Uno Flip is great for children learning about addition in the early elementary grades. It can also be played with older children revising multiplication facts.

How to Play Uno Flip

You will need:

  • The number cards from a pack of Uno cards
  • Post-it notes
  • Paper and pen/pencil or our printable Uno Flip record sheet

Recommended age: 5+ years

To play:

1. Write a + symbol onto a post-it note and an = symbol on a post-it note and place on the table face up to form an addition equation, leaving room for the Uno cards to sit between the symbols.

2. Divide your Uno number cards into two piles and place piles as shown in the photo above.

3. Flip over one card from each pile and place it into the addition equation.

For mental maths, say the answer out loud as quickly as you can.

To practise writing equations, write the addition sentence, including the answer, onto your sheet of paper or record your answer on our printable record sheet (download instructions can be found at the bottom of this post).

Hints & Tips:

    Very innovative way of making kids practice addition. Thanks for sharing. I came across another game called Ocean Raiders. Kids get to practice addition through an amazing undersea adventure board game. Take a look at it on amazon.

  10. Awesome idea! Gonna try this game with my kids learning addition and subtraction.

  11. You could use them for Spanish as well.
