What you need:

Set of Domino Cards. (PDF, 35 KB) You can print these or make your own.

What to do:

Cut along the solid lines to cut out the domino cards.
Deal 5 domino cards to each player. Place one domino face up between the two players and the remaining cards face down. Players take turns to match of their domino cards to the card in the middle. For example:

The 10 and 90 are a pair to 100. The next player can now match to either the 35 or the 40. If a player is unable to add a domino to the line they pick up from the face down pile.
The winner is the first player to use all their domino cards.

What to expect your child to do:

To recall the pairs to 100.   They should become quicker at instantly recalling the facts. 


Children can take all the cards and arrange them so the ends match to form one continuous line.
