Free App: A Math Game that Keeps Kids Moving

Fetch Lunch Rush

I have reviewed so many apps for kids. Most apps don’t require kids to move around. The apps are all educational, but sometimes you still have the concern if they are sitting for too long. Today I found a very interesting app – it teaches math, and in the meantime, it makes kids move around to hunt for the answers. If the idea of scanvenger hunt math game sounds interesting to you, check it out.

Fetch! Lunch Rush!  is an app from PBS Kids show Fetch with Ruff Ruffman.  It is a great show.  My son loves it.  I am glad to see Ruffman has an app now.

Before the game starts, a parent or a teacher has to print out the game sheet from the game website.  On that sheet, there Fetch Lunch Rush Appare pictures of numbers 1 to 10.  You need cut the pictures and put the printed numbers around your house (or classroom).  When kids start the game, Ruffman will give them math problems to figure out how many lunch orders they need deliver.  Once the kids finish the math, they have to search around the room to find the picture of the correct number.  They have to use the iPhone take the picture to send the order to Ruffman.  If the number is correct, Ruffman gets the order.  It is very neat, kids will see the food (sushi) drop right in front of Ruffman.

iGameMom Comments:
The math problems are all single digit addition and subtraction.  However the kids need solve them quickly.  It is fun for the kids to hunt for answers and to send the order via the phone.  It is a great game to get kids move around and learn math at the same time.

It works on iPhone, iPod, iPAD, but you have to have a camera on your device to play the game.  It is FREE on App Store.

If you would like to check it out or purchase it, please use the App Store button provided below. The cost is the same to you, but iGameMom gets a small percentage. Thanks for your support! Note: The button works for all countries.

    Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after looking at a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I came across it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back frequently!

    I went to the App Store to get the app. Everytime I try to open it, it shuts down. Anyone else having this problem?

    • It had never happened to me like that. Maybe delete and re-download?

      • Amy Tharp

        I think I tried that once but I will try it again to see if I get a different result. Thank you!

          I just deleted the app and reinstalled it. Still doesn’t work. Any other ideas? Looks like a great app that the kids at school would like.

          • I suggest you contact their support. Maybe they will give you some ideas.

            • Amy Tharp

              Thank you, again! I will give them a call.

    My kids love that show-and I can actually stand to watch it which is a plus! Will have to check that one out.

    • It is a great show. My son loves it too. The app did a good job in fitting the show style.

  • Stephen B

    Looks like a wonderful app.

    Since we live so far from any city, we LOVE these kinds of apps! It takes about an hour and fifteen minutes to get anywhere to do any decent shopping, so it’s not always about getting up and going outside, it’s about using the time that you have the most productively, and apps like this can help a trip go by very quickly! :o)

    • It is so true. I have been loading every thing on our iPAD, my son’s reading, spelling list, books, math apps, dictionary, games. He can get so much done in the car, and I don’t have to worry about missing anything or it being too dark to read …

  • Did any one get it. If it is nice outside, you can play a game in your backyard or a park.
