### Dollar Store Holiday Card Game Freebee

Yeah! Target has put out the Christmas items in their dollar spot. I love these decks of cards. (BTW, they also had sports cards.) In this blog post, I am going to show you an easy, peasy game! Scroll to the bottom of the post to snag this FREE game.

• Each deck of cards is enough for two games.
• Sort the cards with the black cards in one pile, the red cards in another pile, and the jacks, queens, kings, and jokers in another pile.
• Throw the jacks, etc away. The red cards are for one game and the black cards can be used to make the game again.
• Reproduce a game board for each the black cards and another one for the red cards.
To Play
• This game is played with a partner.
• Place the deck of cards between the players.
• Each player turns over a card.
• The players compare their cards for more and less.
• Each player puts his card on the game board on the correct side—more or less.
• The player with the less card, spins the spinner.
• If it lands on more, the player with the more card gets both cards.
• If it lands on less, the player with the less card gets both cards.
• Repeat the game by inviting each player to turn over another card.

• Here’s another option….
• Each player turns over two cards and adds them together.
• Each player places his cards on the more or less side of the card—comparing the sum.

• The player with less, spins the spinner.
• If it lands on less, the player with less gets al 4 cards.
• If it lands on more, the player with more gets all 4 cards.
• You could also have children turn over 3 cards, add and compare.

Comparing-Place Value
• Invite each player to turn over three cards. (You could also play with each player turning over two cards.)
• The players make a 3 digit number with their cards. (2 digit if they are playing with 2 cards.)
• The players compare for more and less, placing them on the correct spot on the game board.

• The player with less spins the spinner.
• If it lands on less, the player with the lesser number, gets all the cards.
• If it lands on more, the player with the greater number, gets all the cards.
I also picked up the Christmas Tree cards.
2 decks of cards, 4 game boards----8 kids playing! So….get to Target to pick up your cards and scroll to the bottom to get your boards as a FREE download.
