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.
Check out all the options for including Pokemon into math, language, writing, art, nature, history and more.
These educational activities are tops and kids who love the characters are going to be much more likely to want to try them.

Pokemon Learning Activities & Games
Pokemon Math Activities
Have fun with Pokemon through math and art with this neat idea.
Kids calculate math problems, find the answer, and color in the chart to reveal Pokemon characters.
Uses addition and subtraction problems as well as simple multiplication and division.
It is a math activity and coloring book all in one. Perfect for Pokemon GO fans.
UPDATE: There is also a volume 2!
Try this free printable Pokemon math 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.
Win the Pokemon by finding the missing numbers in the math worksheet. This attractive Pokemon printable activity is in full color.
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.
Pokemon Word Search
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!
Here are some Pokemon word search printables: ( a free word search ) if you don’t want to buy a book. The books below are much better though.
Pokemon Alphabet Activity
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. This is a fun printable Pokemon act
Pokemon Writing Activity
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.
Pokemon Art Activities
Get them drawing! So many kids just love to draw characters they are familiar with. Going with the How To Draw Pokemon books is a sure win.
Using drawing books like this one is great for learning about how things are drawn.
They include instructions as well as tips for getting your drawings just right. Unlike some drawing books that are way too hard, this one is just right.
Plus – so many good reviews!
3d Paper Pokemon
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 sculpture 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 the 3D paper sculpture project be sure to have a pair of scissors like my favorite ones.
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 the Batman snowflakes we made!
Having a good pair of scissors is a much but as with anything sharp, you know if your child is ready to use this type of scissors or not.
You should totally treat yourself and get them though 😉
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 (click here to see what I mean.)
- Each character comes with special papers.
- There are 10 characters in all.
- Instructions are very detailed.
This Pokemon activity book is so cool!
This is a really neat Pokemon learning activity!
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.
History of Pokemon
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.
One of our favorite learning activities is building!
Following the directions on a new building set is a great way to learn.
Plus, you can then take them apart and build something totally new – maybe they will build their very own Pokemon character!
- Comes with 8 sets for one low price
- If purchased individually they would be much more $
- Includes over 1100 pieces!
- Like LEGO but tiny
Really a lot of fun for Pokemon fans.
