Carlito C. Caterpillar’s MathHouse Game Card Set ~ A Review & Giveaway

Carlito C. Caterpillar’s MathHouse Game Card Set is a unique, fun and very compact math game card set that was designed to be used to help teach preschoolers through early elementary aged kiddos early math skills.


This game card set was created by Domenico Marcario, M.S., who is a retired high school math teacher and a grandfather.  Marcario designed the games to build upon the {math} knowledge young children already possess.”

There are three stages of material included in this game card set.  Within the three stages of material are 20 steps, and there are 2 games in each step…which equals 40 math games in all. 

You can read more about how to use this game card set here.

My Thoughts

I appreciate that most of the games in this card set are easy to prepare for and simple to play with your young kiddos.  The props for most of the games are basic items we usually have in our home already like food items {fruit, cereal pieces}, socks, pennies, etc. 

There are some supplemental materials required for some of the games but the creators of Carlito C. Caterpillar’s MathHouse Games have made these easy for you to make yourself by providing free printables on their website for these manipulatives.

Flipping through the card set, I have already tagged a couple of games that I know my kiddos will enjoy {and learn from}.  I plan to start at the beginning with my preschooler {ds4}.  The first game in Stage 1 is called “Alike It or Not” and it teaches kiddos about sets by having them place “alike” objects together.

I think that my 2nd grader will benefit from playing the games in Stage 3 of this math card set which has kiddos learning about basic math operations.
