Games to play with a deck of cards
You'll need one deck of cards per student, with all the face cards taken out. To make the game more challenging, you can also remove the 1's (aces) and 2's as well. Players turn over the top card on their deck and the first person to multiply the numbers shown and say the product out loud (not too loud though) is the winner and keeps both cards. If there is a tie, cards go in the middle and the winner of the next round gets that pile too.
30 More or Less
For this game, kids will need 1 - 2 decks of cards (your choice), with only the kings removed. Aces are 1, Jacks are 11, and Queens are 12. One child is designated as "More than 30" and the other is "Less than 30". Each player gets half of the cards and then players flip over their top card.
Students multiply these cards together and if the product is below 30, the Less Than Thirty child keeps the cards and if it is greater than 30, the More Than Thirty child keeps it. If it is exactly 30, the cards are left in the middle and the next winner keeps those cards as well. Play continues until the cards run out. The player with the most cards wins.
