—> What age range is this best for? 

The math level of the puzzles is best for 3-5th grade. 

—> How many kids can do this at a time? 

It can be played by a handful of kids in a homeschool setting, or as many as 28 when working in small groups. The 7 puzzles can be solved simultaneously in any order. 

—> How much prep time can I expect? 

The prep mainly consists of printing, a little cutting, and hiding the puzzles around the room--no more than about 30 minutes. 

—> How can an escape room help my child? 

When your child does math, they might get anxious, worry about making mistakes, or give up easily. 

They might work quickly to get through it as fast as possible--impatient at having to "think" or puzzle out a difficult problem. 

But an escape room feels different. The stakes are lower; they are more willing to take risks. Mistakes are not a big deal, because it's just a game. 

That means there are more opportunities for persistence and creative thinking when they meet challenges--and a high chance they will figure it out on their own. 

They come away with a sense of confidence and pride that they CAN do hard math...and that's priceless!

Another Big Hit!

Loved this, my 3rd grader LOVED this even more! She was challenged just enough to really spark that drive to figure it out and was so super proud of herself when she did. It took the perfect amount of time as well.

A fun Thanksgiving activity!

We really enjoyed this today (Thanksgiving). Thank you for making it! Because we didn't have a group - just our own two kids - to add to the excitement, I printed off the Thanksgiving scavenger hunt cards from the Dating Divas (free) and used them to direct the kids to different locations in the house to find an envelope containing one of the Math Escape challenges. They worked as a team to solve the challenges. The challenges were just the right level and were varied enough to keep everyone's interest. When each challenge was completed, the kids I gave them the next scavenger hunt clue to find the next challenge. For us the lock code at the end gave the clue to find a stuffed turkey toy that gobbled. We all had so much fun , even Dad! We are all hoping you will make a Christmas one too!


I picked this up for our homeschool friends giving party after we enjoyed the Halloween one so much!

I broke the kids into teams of two (ranging from age 9-11) and gave them 40 mins. They needed a little guidance here and there but it was the perfect level of confidence and challenge. Thanks for another great activity!
