Free Printable Educational Card Games and Board Games

Card games and board games are an excellent teaching tool. They're are interactive and hands-on. Children practice many skills when playing card or board games. They learn to count, add, subtract, prioritize, plan, organize, sort, coordinate and evaluate. Card games can be created to teach content area and subject matter and help students memorize information. I remember teaching and homeschooling before Internet and computers. I made dozens of card games for students. That's pretty labor intensive, With the Internet we have access to free printable activities to use as lesson plans. This saves time and money. Simply print, laminate and cut apart. Here are links for free printable card games.

Mom's View has a nice assortment of educational games, math, geometry matching and more. There are free printable game tokens, playing pieces and dice.

Altogether there are 100+  free printable games for classroom, homeschool or family fun. Follow instructions carefully to be sure you print the right number of game sheets. Making printable games has the added benefit of being a craft project for kids. I recommend you print a paper copy of the cards, game pieces and game boards. Then use copier to print the game onto card stock. Laminate the entire sheet before you cut out the pieces. Save printing ink by setting printer preferences to economy and black and white setting. Have kids color games--now you have cut and paste craft, coloring activity and game! Better and better!
