I am in the small group of people who actually enjoy solving arithmetic problems.
When I was young, I would doodle math problems in my notebook in my spare time.
My kids, though, aren’t big fans of arithmetic, unless I can make it fun.
So instead of just giving them a sheet of problems to solve, I put together a fun aquarium-themed lesson: our Aquarium Arithmetic Seek and Find activity!
And if you’re looking for a way to practice adding and subtracting online, you can get this in a digital version too!
Read on to see how to get your copy.
Plus, take a look at our easy Sidewalk Chalk Outdoor Math Game for some hands-on math practice fun!

This product includes eight sheets of addition and subtraction problems.
Once they find the corresponding problems, they can color them in!
For example, one of the pages instructs kids to “color the problems that have a difference of 5”.
So after kids solve the subtraction problems, they can go back and color in the bubbles for the problems that equal 5.
A full set of instructions and a complete answer key are also included!
