Clumsy Thief Junior
If your kiddos are still using their fingers to add sums up to 10, then Clumsy Thief Junior is the game for them. Targeting mental math, Clumsy Thief Junior is an excellent way for children to get math practice without realizing it. The rules of Clumsy Thief Junior are easy to understand. A mischievous raccoon mixed up the family's food. Players claim cards by stacking food cards that have sums equaling 10. Claimed food can be snatched away by other players, and everyone plays simultaneously, so restless players never become bored. But watch out for that raccoon who can steal your stacks of produce. Only a trap card can stop him!
Clumsy Thief Junior cards are constantly switching hands, which ensures lots of opportunities to exercise good sportsmanship! Awards for Clumsy Thief Junior range from The Parents' Choice Foundation Award to the Tillywig Toy Awards, Academics' Choice Award, and many more.

This is a fun math game to play with the littles.
I recently gave Clumsy Thief Jr. to my five year old for her birthday. I can tell it is going to take a bit for her to understand everything, but my second grader enjoyed it. I hope this can help both of them with their addition.
This game was an instant hit with our kindergartener and has become a family favorite! Great fun way to incorporate math!
This one was a HIT. THANK YOU! My 5 year old took a bit to get use to it but loves it.
I recommend this game to everyone I know! We play at least 2-3 times a day and even my older kids (11 & 9) like to get in on the rounds. It is simple to understand and quick to play, which is a huge selling point for me. Simply deal the cards, lay down your matches, and start adding! I can't recommend this game highly enough. In fact, my kids have requested the other Clumsy Thief games for their birthdays.
