21

This simple card game is an awesome way to help with addition! The goal of this game is to get as close to or even with the number 21 without going over. Start by dealing two cards to each player. Have each player add up how many points they have between the two cards and then ask if they want another card. The cards two through ten have their own face value. Jacks, Queens and King are each worth ten points and the Ace is worth either one or eleven points (the player's choice).  Keep adding cards to your pile until you reach twenty-one or come as close as you can to it. If you go over twenty-one, you are out of that round and are bust. Play as many rounds as you want and see who can reach twenty-one the most!
