This is an affordable and printable alternative to the traditional Montessori Stamp Game with a few amazing differences: 1) it includes stamps for 10,000; 100,000; and 1,000,000 so you can extend on the usual 4-digit questions; 2) the stamps can be double-sided so they will always be facing upwards and children won't have to deal with the tediousness of flipping them over; 3) the stamps are slightly larger than the traditional stamps to make them easier for small fingers to manipulate.
Also included, is 8 different options for place value labels that can go at the top of a child's work mat to help them stay organized. I've designed the stamp file to be as practical and easy to prepare as possible. There are guidelines to help you cut and you only need to print as many copies as you need. Start with one copy and print more as your children move on to more complicated questions. This also minimizes the amount of printer ink you will need at the outset, but I also have a low-ink version if you'd prefer.
Once you get these stamps prepared you can use them for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division questions!
