    Flash Cards

    Hop To It

    This game can be played with addition or subtraction.

    What You Need:

    • Index cards with the numbers 1-20 written in large print on each
    • 2 or more players

    What You Do:

    • Spread the cards out on the ground.
    • The caller calls out an addition or subtraction sentence equal to one of the cards from 1-20.
    • All other players try to be the first to jump to the card equal to number sentence called.
      • Ex: Caller says “5+9”, players try to be the first to jump to card 14
    • The first player to reach the card can pick it up.
    • Switch callers on each turn.
    • When all cards are picked up, the player with the most cards wins.



    • Write the numbers 1-20 on the driveway with sidewalk chalk.
    • Players work together (instead of competing) to see how many cards they can pick up in a minute.


    “I Wish I Had…”

    No materials needed! This is a great game to play in the car on the way to soccer, dance, piano, dinner at Grandma’s, etc.

    What You Do:

    • The caller says “I wish I had…(any number up to 20)…But I only have (any number less than 20).”
    • The other player(s) say what the caller needs.


    Caller: “I wish I had 10 but I only have 3.”

    Player(s): “You need 7!”

    Caller: “I wish I had 12 but I only have 9.”

    Player(s): “You need 3!”



    This game can be played with addition or subtraction.
