Last week I shared some of the math card games I played with the kids. Life has been busy and I only had the chance to print out these next two games yesterday. I’ll share them with you today. These are a couple more games that use the Christmas Number Cards I shared last week.
The first game is called the Quick Christmas Cross-Off. It’s great for kids who are learning to recognize double-digit numbers.
You need the number cards 0 through 9 from five or six different decks. Print off one of the game boards (there’s a large one on the following page or 2 small ones on page 15.)
Each player chooses a different color marker or crayon.
- On the first player’s turn, she takes 2 cards and put them together in any order and cross of that number combination.
- A player with the number 3 and 4 cards could cross off either 34, 43 or 3 and 4.
- The first player to connect 5 boxes in a row wins!
Great Grid Game
For this game you need cards from 1-6 and two markers or crayons of different colors.
- The first player selects two cards. Create a grid with those numbers.
- For example, if a player gets a 2 and 6 she marks out a grid like the green example below.
- If the next player gets two 3s, she would mark out the grid like the red example below.
- Continue playing until the board is covered and/or no more grids can be colored.
