# Addition and subtraction to 20 – magic square for kids

Magic squares are a fun way to practice addition and subtraction for kids. They are not only a set of mathematical operations to be performed, but also a puzzle to be solved. So today I am publishing another set of magic squares with which kids can practice addition and subtraction up to 20.

To solve a magic square, you need to know what it really is. It is a table in which the numbers are arranged in such a way that their sum in each row, column and diagonal is the same. This sum is called a magic sum.

In three squares, I have given the value of the magic sum in a stars. In the last square, however, the children have to calculate this sum by adding together the numbers written in the first row.

Today’s worksheet is for younger kids again. I adjusted the scope of the material and the font size to their capabilities. I also used auxiliary lines to make writing easier.

In the pdf file you will find a magic squares solution.

We invite you to work together.
