My daughter is starting to recognize patterns in addition such as 3 groups of 3 is equal to nine or I can figure out 5 fives by skip counting by fives. It’s exciting to see her forming these connections before I formally introduce multiplication. As I’ve been thinking about the best ways to introduce and model multiplication for her, I’ve been working on a lesson pack to share with my readers as well! These games (and so much more) are included in the bundle, but I’m excited to share these simple, printable multiplication games to practice these important skills FREE today!

Materials Needed for these Printable Multiplication Games:
- Game board of your choice (3 are included)
- Game pieces (anything will work)
- 1 die
- Laminator (for durability, especially if you’re a classroom teacher)
And that’s it! These games are a super simple and fun way for kids to practice their multiplication facts as they dash to the finish!
To Play Multiplication Dash:
All players place their game piece on start. They then take turns rolling the die and moving forward that number of spaces.
They must then correctly answer the multiplication problem on that space.
If correct, they can stay on that space.
If incorrect, however, they must go back to their previous space. (It is up to the other players to pay attention and make sure they give the correct answer).
The first player to reach the finish wins!
Included in this download:
As I mentioned, there are 3 different printable multiplication games in this download. I wanted there to be some variety so that if you are working on specific facts, you could use a different game board.
The first game board only includes facts from 0-5 for beginners.
The second game board includes facts from 2-12 for general practice and review.
And the third game board includes facts from 6-12, so if you want to focus specifically on the more challenging facts, you can.
All game boards are labeled so that you know which facts are covered, and in black and white for easy printing.
