Playing is fun and learning can be too!

Card Flip & Count! Ages 5+

The boys really enjoyed card flipping and working on addition.  Line 3 cups up in a row near the edge of the table.  Get 3 playing cards and place one in front of each cup, overhanging the table.   Using a plastic knife or chopstick flip the cards into the cup.  Once all 3 cards are flipped into the cups, add up the numbers.  We took out all the picture cards.  For added competition you can do it as a race or beat the timer.
