2.7 based on 14 ratings

What You Need:

  • Deck of playing cards with the face cards (jacks, queens, and kings) removed
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Calculator (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Have your child shuffle the cards and arrange 12 of them face up in a 4 x 4 grid.
  2. Deal 2 more "Equation Cards", face up to the side of the grid. The remaining cards should be placed face down.
  3. Have her look at the cards in the grid. Then, create an equation with the two extra cards which equal the number of one of the cards in the grid. Here's an example of what happened when we played: The equation cards are 3 and 4. We added 3 + 4 removed any cards in her grid that equal 7.
  4. Each round should begin with her replacing any cards she removed from the grid, as well as the two equation cards.
  5. When all cards have been removed from the grid, the game is complete!
