About Us - Why Melon Rind was started

Our Story


My name is Jeanie.

I am a graphic designer and a mom.

My son, David, used to believe he wasn't "good at math". The truth was he wasn't "interested" in math. Big difference.

David understood the concepts, but he wasn't interested in the practice. And getting good at anything requires thoughtful practice. 

I wanted to create fun ways for him to practice math. Activities he would love so much... he'd actually be eager to learn the math, in order to play. I set out to create games that were hilarious, fun and could be shared with friends.

Over the years I expanded on those early games. If your kids would love a lively way to practice math, these games are for you!
