We love games around here. Card games are probably one of our favorite types of games! And learning, well, yeah, we love that too. (Seriously!)
Fractazmic is a fractions card game. The game play reminds me of Gin Rummy. Instead of a group of cards in laid out in ascending order, in Fractazmic the object is to add the different fractions up to make a whole, or "1."
There are three colors of cards (or suits) and these adorable cartoon pictures that help kids see the fraction in their head. My boys thrive on seeing how math works. Fractazmic is a great hands-on activity that shows how the part of a whole fits together without the mess of cooking (which is how we usually work with fractions!)

The online versions of Fractazmic and Pyromath are available on the I See Cards website. Play for your chance to win your own deck!
This is a great game for learning, but don't expect your kids to want to play this on game night. It is a nice change from our regular math routine and definitely teaches.
