The Pokemon craze is real. Since kids (and adults!) are all excited about Pokemon again I though I would gather together some Pokemon learning activities for you to use.

Pokemon Learning Activities
1. I want to make sure to tell you we did a Pokemon book list that you simply can’t miss! It is packed with handbooks and activity books that will get them learning.
2. In this Pokemon Alphabet Matching game you grab a Pokeball and catch a character by matching upper and lower case letters. Easy and fun for kids who are learning their letters.
3. If you want your boys to do a bit of writing, introduce them to this idea of Pokemon trading card writing. This was a self initiated project and those are by far the best. I do think you could mention the idea and see if your kids like it as perhaps they haven’t even though of doing it. You could try this nifty trading card template too.
4. I found a bunch of Pokemon word searches for you in a variety of difficulty levels. I always think they are enjoyable and kids learn spelling while doing them which is a bonus!
5. Win the Pokemon by finding the missing numbers. This attractive printable is in full color.
6. Here is a very Pokemon way to learn multiplication. This game is fun and involves kids in learning while playing (you know I love that!) I like that it is a bit complex and includes elements, multiplication problems and as a bonus, a battle with Pikachu at the end.
7. These look like fun. They combine math with art. Try one of these three options depending on your child’s math level:
- Pokemon charted math color by number pages
- Pokemon charted addition and subtraction coloring pages
- Pokemon charted multiplication and division coloring pages
8. In this free printable game you start at the stadium, fill in coordinates and solve math problems to win. The board includes some neat characters like Charizard and Squirtle.
9. Oh my! I just love these. This might just be my favorite of our list of Pokemon learning activities. Believe me when I say there is a whole lot of learning going on when doing this project. Create your own 3D paper sculputure of different Pokemon characters. Here is Pikachu! There is a whole website full of these – they are called PaperPokes. They do require small scissor work and a lot of patience. They would be great for older boys who enjoy model building but even younger kids could do them with some help from a kind parent or older sibling. If you do try this project be sure to have a pair of scissors like my favorite ones (Cutter Bee Scissors) They are so, so nice because they are very accurate and cut clean. I use them for all sorts of small paper cutting projects including snowflakes!
10. If the paper sculptures above are a bit too complex for your child, try this Pokemon origami book instead. It is super because the directions are step-by-step (see below) and they come with special papers to complete 10 characters.
11. I was searching on Pinterest and found this infographic that shows Pokemon characters with their real life animal inspirations. I thought is was rather cool. Here is the pin. You could get your kids to take a look at other characters and ask them if they can find animals that are similar to them as well.
12. For those who have to know everything about Pokemon this version of the History of Pokemon talks about how the Pokemon craze was started by a young man who used to like to catch insects and tadpoles and brought that interest to life as a game. It continues on to include a lot of information fans will enjoy reading.
These Pokemon learning activities ought to keep your fan busy learning new things. Enjoy!
