Learning with Dominoes

Classic Dominoes

Classic Dominoes

My son loves any sequencing game where you have to match numbers, words, shapes, or images together. During the lockdown, he has thoroughly enjoyed playing dominoes with me nearly every day.

We went from playing dominoes to my son wanting to know if there were more games out there similar to this game. We looked on the internet and were able to find Mapominoes.


Mapominoes is similar to Dominoes, but you use map cards instead. The idea of the game is to match the counties (for the UK pack), states (for the USA pack) or countries (for the Europe pack) that are connected by a common border.

We bought these three packs, although my son was quick to notice that there were other packs too. (When my son has fun while learning, I will always encourage that.)

I was excited at how focused my son was while playing these learning games, that I decided to purchase two more Domino games: Time Dominoes and Money Dominoes.

Time Dominoes

With time dominoes, you have to match the time on the image of an analogue clock with the digital time.

Money Dominoes

For money dominoes, you match the number value with the image of the UK coin on the card.

All in all, it is always great when my son engages with learning, as learning should be fun. Dominoes learning may not be for everyone, but it works well for my son. (and it is entertaining and enjoyable too!)
