A fun first addition game.  Frog Party is designed to support children learning to count up to ten.
 
Children race their frogs to the centre of the board, to be the first to join the frog party and win.  Children can use the lily pad counters to add the two numbers on the double spinner, before the progress to the tried and tested number line method of basic addition.
 
 Assemble the lily pad paths and connect them to the central party square.  Place the spinner in reach of all players and spread out the lily pad discs, face up, on the table.  Insert the frog characters into the matching coloured character stands.  Each player chooses a frog character and places it on the matching coloured arrow at the start of the lily pad paths.
 
The object of the game is to be the first player to reach the Frog Party in the centre of the board.
 

The youngest player begins by spinning both arrows on the double spinner.  They then add the two numbers together. Depending on the age and ability of the players they can use either the lily pad discs or the number line to help them.

 
 N.B. If players’ addition skills are more advanced they do not have to use either method to answer the sums.
 
Using the lily pad discs:
The player reads the number on the left of the spinner and takes the corresponding number of discs from the table.  They then read the number on the right of the spinner and take the corresponding number of discs. The player then counts the total number of discs in front of them, giving them the answer to the sum on the spinner e.g. If they spin a 5 and a 3, they take 5 discs plus a further 3 discs. They then count all of their discs to give them the answer to the sum, which in this case is 8.
 
N.B.  Once a player has finished counting with the discs they should return them to the middle of the table.
 
Using the number line:
The player reads the number on the left of the spinner and places the index finger of their left hand on the corresponding number on the number line. They then read the number on the right of the spinner and, using the index finger of their right hand, count that many spaces along the number line to the right of the finger already on the line.  e.g. If they spin a 5 and a 3, they place their left index finger on the number 5 and then count 3 spaces along the line to the right of the number 5.
 
Their right finger should finish on the number 8.  Players should be encouraged to say their sum out loud e.g. “five plus three equals eight”.  The player then moves their frog along their lily pad path the number of spaces equal to the sum.  Play then passes to the next person.
 
The game ends when the first player reaches their coloured spot on the Frog Party square.
 
N.B. The exact number does not need to be spun to reach the party. The winner is the first player to reach the Frog Party in the centre of the board.
