Catch N’ Fish After the dealer gives each player seven cards; the first player spins the wheel and starts a wave of fun! Any pair of cards that added together matches the number from the spin makes a Catch. If you’re paying attention, you can sometimes make two or three Catches in a single spin! The first player to make five Catches is the winner. And the best part is that win or lose, kids, learn oodles of math skills.

Sharks Are Wild Kids can play open-handed at first to get their sea legs. After they master the basic game, the advanced version adds more of a challenge and can even bring older siblings into the game. In Level Two of the game, a couple of other deep-sea pals of mine add even more excitement. Watch out for the Octopus! He lets a player grab another player’s card and add it to their own sequence. But you can stop the Octopus from grabbing any card if you have a Dolphin in your hand.  I’m sure you can see how the reversals of fortune keep things exciting, right? But the changes that happen during each player’s turn also make kids continually revise their sequences, reinforcing what they’ve learned. That’s my game’s secret to making learning fun!
Piggy Bank The goal of my game is to force another player to ‘break the bank’ by putting too many coins inside the piggy. Played by 2 to 4 players, each game starts by drawing a Piggy Bank card that sets the limit of coins the bank will hold for that hand. In the example below, the Piggy Bank limit is 25 coins. After being dealt five coin cards, the players take turns adding cards to a growing Discard pile until one player is forced to go over the piggy bank’s limit. In the sequence below, it looks like the next player will be forced to break the bank’s limit of 25 coins.
But there are some surprises in store the Pig Out and Oink-Oink cards.

My Opinion: Each one f these card games are fun as they teach kids so many important lessons like counting, making decisions, practicing number sentences and more.
