I am totally a sucker for spring. When the weather starts getting warmer, you can open your windows to the gorgeous air outside, and the flowers start blooming again…the whole world feels fresh. I’m also a sucker for spring cleaning, which should happen more often throughout the year. Alas, I’ll have to settle for fun board games.
Spring printables are so much fun to make, by the way. They are colorful and pretty. And happy! So I had to make a printable flower game and thought fractions were the perfect subject.
This week Cassie are I are all about Spring! Yes, it is Spring printables week! So excited! I will be sending out an amazing unit study plan for spring in a few days – and it will go to my newsletter list first! So sign up if you like weekly e-mails full of links to great printables and early access to some of my printables.
How to Set Up the Flower Fraction Game
This game is a simpler set up than a lot of my games, if only because the board is just one page. All you need to do is cut out the cards (after printing them double sided, of course) and tape together the game pieces. Each game piece has a long part on each end. Just wrap them around until they meet each other and tape them together. Then your game pieces will stand up for game play.
I recommend printing on cardstock. The cards become a bit see through with regular paper.
The game pieces for this are little butterflies. Aren’t they adorable?
How to Play the Flower Fraction Game
This game is simple and straightforward. Start on ‘start’. The first player draws a card and moves to the next space with the matching fraction. Fractions included in the game are halves, thirds, and quarters. First person to the bee wins!
Each card has an image of flowers on the back and a fraction on the front. My cards were a bit too see through (whoops! Should have used cardstock).
