Games are a great way to spend time together as a family. Games are also a great way to get in some sneaky learner. But what if you don’t have a ton of space to store games or to play games?
I have a solution for you – card games.
The best part about card games are that there are SO many different ones to choose from. Many of our favorite and most played games happen to be card games.
Some of the things we love about them are that they require little space, are easy to setup and cleap up, and can be stored in our favorite containers.

SIMPLE PACK OF CARDS
Another option is to buy a pack of cards and maybe a set of dice. You would be surprised how many fun games you can play with just a pack of cards and a handful of dice. Check out my Game Night in a Bag or grab one of these books for games and directions on how to play.
If you have little kids/hands playing or if you plan to play games that require a lot of cards to be in your hand at once I highly reccomend these card holders. We have used them for years and we all enjoy them.
Tracking Your Card Game Play
Being able to quantify game playing as “school” doesn’t have to be hard. You can just keep track of the games you play. I reccomend using this free printable game log. It is perfect for logging the games you’ve played and easy to add into a homeschool portfolio if you have to keep one.
