My son was struggling originally with addition and subtraction of numbers with a sum of over ten. He could do the ones with single digit sums, like 5+4, but 5+9 was giving him fits. I decided to make up a test, but I wanted to have the ability to tweak them and be random, so that I could change them around whenever the need arose. So, I took a spreadsheet and wrote formulas based on the types of problems I wanted, made the criteria able to be varied, and made each problem have random components. Over time, I evolved the sheet to more types of math as my kids grew. Take a look at the page on this for more details and to download my Excel file or an example.

More to Come
I’m sure I’ll find other fun things to make in the future as my kids grow and will share them here. I’d appreciate your feedback, and also will be happy to allow you to post links to other sites with helpful tools in a comment below. However, only legitimate links to kid-friendly tools for learning. Unfortunately, in today’s web world, I have to put a couple of layers of screening when folks enter comments to keep out spam.
