Homemade Printable Games

Blog posts have been written here covering each of the game types that I use at this time. All of these games use rules from sources that have a long history of fun. And every new game I learn seems to be a twist on an old one.

Each game we play we look for information to earn points; pairs, sets, categories, or sequences. When you learn a new game think about 'what you are searching for' or 'how you earn points.' Look for fun, simple rules that you could use with the information (pairs, sets, categories, or sequences) that your kids need to memorize.

I encourage you to use this ancient tool to help your kids memorize information.

Category Train Card Games – DIY Homeschool

I only have one Category Train game for sale at this time, in July 2013, but all of the games that use categories could use these rules. No additional parts needed, just the key and the cards with these rules.

Here are the rules you can use to create your own printable game.

Category Train Card Game rules for your DIY printable game.

Just like the other games, I suggest creating your key first, then making the game cards using it as a reference.

The MatchIt Card Game, Stephanie's Spinner Card Game, and this Category Train Card Game can use the same game cards.

Phonics rules work well with categories, but I also have a Vertebrates MatchIt Card Game, a Color and Shape early learning game, a Five Senses Card Game and a Parts of Speech Card Game, that use categories of information.

Stephanie's Spinner Card Game for Categories – DIY Homeschool

I have two “Stephanie's Spinner Card Games” one for Categories of Information and one for Sets of Information. The rules are not exchangeable.

Sets have a specific number of members and categories can have an undisclosed number of members. For example:

Sets:

One complete set in Phonics – {an image of} an apple

                                               “A”

                                               “a”

One complete set in Math - {an image of} five items

                                          “5”

                                          “V”

                                          "five"

Categories:

One category in Phonics – words that have a short 'a'

One category in Math - multiples of 5

Categories are never 'complete.'

When I create a game, I start with filling out my answer key. Then, fill out the game cards using the key. I have a free template for game cards (plus a bunch of free printable games) on teachwithgames.com, for members...

Clothespin Activities (using categories of information)

To prepare this activity print the answer key/ answer page onto an address label sticker page and the game board on card stock or construction paper. Then, stick the answers onto the clothespins.

 PartsofSpeechclothespinLabelsS

Answers could be written or stuck on the back of the game board if self-check is desired.

PartsofSpeechClothespinParallegramS                                    PartsofSpeechClothespinParallegramKEYS

When you make math games, beginning players could use the questions with answers, then switch to just answers as they memorize problems. Eventually, players will clip the answers to the correct problems/ questions.

You can make these yourself or these example activities are sold for $1 (for two fish shapes studying plurals and this parallelogram, all three) at Currclick.
