To determine the game method's implementation using a real-world approach to increase children's learning creativity in TK Ma'arif 22 Trimurjo. The technique used for this research is qualitative. Subjects were students included and engaged in math games with the real-world: in-depth interview data collection techniques, observation, and documentation. In the implementation of playing activities, students' attitudes are given the freedom to develop their potential and creative power according to their talents and interests. In this case, it can be proven by the games at TK Ma'arif 22 Trimurjo. Mathematical games using a real-world approach in increasing the learning creativity of kindergarten students.
