Crazy 8s Math Club

Read Aloud Room
Join Crazy 8s Math Club at Hardwood Creek Library where we will build stuff, run and jump, make music and make a mess. It’s a totally new kind of math club for kids in grades K-2. This club starts on Tuesday, Sept. 25 and will run every Tuesday at 4 p.m. through Nov. 13. Our weekly themes will be:
  • Glow in the Dark Geometry: Make geometric shapes using glowsticks. Lay out the sticks to create mystical repeating patterns. Then flick off the lights to see it all glow!
  • Bouncy Dice Explosion: Your big chance to throw things because you’re supposed to. Find out the probability of rolling a 2 or a 5 then try to be the winning chip on a giant human Bingo board.
  • Spy Training: See if you have what it takes to be a spy. You’ll break different codes for clues to find the hidden treasure!
  • Time of Your Life: What makes you tick? “Be” the hands of an analog clock and discover hidden the math in a digital clock before time runs out!
  • Crazy Card Club: Crazy 8s isn’t just the name of our club; it’s also a famous card game! Learn how to play it and other fun games using a deck of cards you get to keep!
  • Flying Marshmallows: Send marshmallows flying through the air using popsicle sticks and rubber bands. Figure out what positions work best, then measure the flight to prove it.
  • Let’s Get Loud: Experiment with water and straws to create different sounds, then build a working pan flute! After all that, find out exactly how loud you are, down to the numbers.
  • Toilet Paper Olympics: Bet you never knew sports and toilet paper could go together, huh? Put your Olympian skills to the test in the shot put, long jump, and relay race events.
Registration is required! We must have 12 kids registered to host the club as per the Bedtime Math’s Crazy 8’s Club requirements. If we don’t have 12 kids will be forced to cancel the series. We will know by Sept. 21 if we have enough participants to proceed.
