#### ziploc quilt number game and several other ideas...cheap and easy

#### ziploc quilt games using ziploc bags, duct tape and packing tape - great idea!!

#### Hold on to your hats because this game is 8 kinds of fun! Inspired by Scott from Brick by Brick to create my own game board. Scott’s idea reminded me of the Ziploc quilts from way back when so I decided to combine the two ideas and create this little beauty! Here’s how you can make your own game and board. Materials for making the Ziploc game board: Re-sealable Sandwich Bags {dollar store- logo free} Duct Tape {use half-off coupon from craft store} Masking or Packing Tape Scissors How to assemble the Ziploc game board: I’m more of a visual learner so I just laid out all my materials and “eye-balled” it. Sometimes I think the step-by-step directions hold us back because everybody does it a little differently, let’s just say there are no hard-fast rules. First, lay out the bags on the floor evenly with about a 1 inch gap between each bag. Then, tape two rows together with duct tape and when they are complete move on to the next two rows. You only use duct tape on one side of the quilt, which is the front. The other side will function as the back of the quilt where you can insert and remove your cards. When you have the number of bags you want taped together, create the border around the outside making sure to leave space for the bags open. Finally, turn the quilt over with the back side facing up and place masking or packing tape over the gaps between each bag. How to play the game: You will need a fly swatter and some index cards or cardstock cut to size. Make dots on your cards and insert them into your game board. I used a Do-A-Dot marker to make the dots but you could also use dot stickers. Write numerals on index cards and place them in a pile next to the game board. Each player takes a turn selecting a card and then uses the fly swatter to swat the corresponding number. What kid doesn’t love hitting things with a fly swatter?

It’s super easy to make too! Just some popsicle sticks and plastic coins. You can use stickers too – I like the coins because the kids can feel the edges. I used a large “nut” container, and the popsicle sticks fit PERFECTLY inside – you can even put the lid on for storage! Hot glue (or super glue!) the coins on to the sticks. On a couple of the sticks write “Bankrupt. ” Kids sit in a circle and pass the can around – when it is their turn, the child takes one and says the name of the coi...

#### Math Game: "Bankrupt" Kids sit in a cirlce; Pull a stick and say the value (if correct), add it to the center pot,but bankruptcy can happen. older kids take turns and must continually add the values of their sticks winner has the most when timer goes off

#### Money game for naming coins. Popsicle sticks, plastic coins, and a large container. Hot glue the coins on to the sticks. On a couple of the sticks write “Bankrupt. ” Kids sit in a circle and pass the can around–when it is their turn, the child takes one and says the name of the coin (you can also have them say the value). If they are correct, the stick goes in the center, if they are wrong, the stick goes back in the can. If they pull the bankrupt stick, all the sticks go back in the can.

#### Teaching Money game

#### Oooh Oohh! Fun Math Money Game...you pass the container around the circle and each kid pulls out a popsicle stick and names the correct coin on their stick.. hopefully ;)
