Numbers GO FISH Printable Card Game & 3 more ways to play!


Little Sis has numbers 1-10 mastered, and is so-so on numbers after that; the teen numbers are tricky little buggers! Once she gets to 20 and beyond, it is pretty smooth sailing as far as counting goes.  

Being that this is a skill we will keep working on throughout her Kindergarten year, I love coming up with different ways to help her master counting beyond 10.

To help her recognize and count beyond ten, I created this Ocean Themed Card Game that convieniently can be played several other ways, too!  Four games in one!!

Since it is summer time, we had to have some ocean fun and since we aren't anywhere near a sandy beach, this card game will have to do!  It's definitely the closest I will get to a shark and it is a great way to sneak in some learning skills before it is time to get back in our homeschool routine!

Prior to playing, you'll need to prep the card game.  I LOVE my Scotch Laminator and it sure came in handy for this activity!

Not sure if I did it correctly, but first I glued scrapbook paper to the back of the paper.  Next I cut out each card and then placed it in the laminating pocket to be sealed.  Then, I cut the cards out again and used my corner rounder to smooth out the corners-- they can be quite sharp!

With the ocean card game printable you'll be able to use it four different ways:

  • Go Fish! #'s10-20
  • Shark Attack! {our version of Old Maid}
  • Memory Matching Game
  • Number Sequencing

To play Ocean GO Fish! you won't need the Shark! cards so just set them aside for the time being.

You'll play just like Go Fish! but we chose to begin with three cards in our hand to start the game.

This is a great way to practice number recognition beyond 10!  Since there are not a lot of cards, this game can be played pretty quickly.

Shark Attack! is inspired by the game, Old Maid.  

Deal out all the cards between two players.  

Set aside any matches you may have.  

Player A goes first and picks a card from player B's hand.  Next it is Player B's turn. 

The player that does not have the shark at the end of the game, wins!
