Path Puzzles

These simple puzzles (really worksheets in disguise!) encourage children to choose the right path by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing a series of numbers to find the correct total. Use ours or print out the blanks and create your own worksheets for extra practice, adapting to suit the age of your children.

Older kids might also like to create worksheets for their younger siblings: great practice for both!
