20 Free Multiplication Worksheets: Basic Facts and Skip Counting for 2nd – 5th Grade: Help reinforce the learning of basic multiplication facts with these 20 free math worksheets that focus on skip counting and identifying the answers to basic multiplication facts.
I can still remember working on my basic multiplication facts with flashcards that I had at home. I have always been a big fan of flashcards for learning information, even as a kid. Young Angie liked the repetition, I guess. I was also kind of nerdy like that. (It’s also funny that I said I was nerdy. It still may very well be the case.)
My next stand out memory of multiplication facts was when our youngest was in her second year of school (after having been homeschooled since the beginning), which was also her first year in a high ability class. Her class the year before hadn’t worked a lot on basic facts and then her new class went right into timed multiplication tests. It was a very stressful time!
I have two packets today that I have combined into a single download that I hope will make some of that basic fact learning stress a little less stressful and a little more fun. There are 20 free pages of multiplication worksheets to work on basic facts practice!

20 Free Multiplication Worksheets: Basic Facts and Skip Counting
Repetition is vital when learning basic multiplication facts. I know, it’s not always fun, but it’s necessary. Of course, it doesn’t have to be flashcards like I liked. Packets like this can help with that repetition as well!
With this double packet, kids can work on:
- Skip counting from a number that is in the “ones” facts up to the number that is in the “tens” facts
- Recognizing the multiplication facts that can make a particular answer (product)
Basic Multiplication Worksheets for 2nd – 5th Grade Content Included
While I have combined these packets into one download, they are actually two separate packets. The download is 24 pages long total.
Skip Counting Mazes Packet
The eight other pages in the packet are all flower mazes that work on skip counting.
There are pages for counting by the following numbers:
- 2s to 20
- 3s to 30
- 4s to 40
- 5s to 50
- 6s to 60
- 7s to 70
- 8s to 80
- 9s to 90
Students could either draw a line to finish the maze or they can color each of the flowers in their skip counting maze to show how they will skip count their way through the maze.
Identifying the Correct Product: Puddle Splashing Basic Multiplication Facts
All of the other pages feature pictures that can be colored and a number that is the theme for that page. Students will then color in all of the raindrops on that page that are equations that make the product shown.
For instance, on the page that has 16 in the clouds, students will color in the raindrops with 2×8, 4×4, and 16×1.
