Some homemade games for you to enjoy. It's a great way to get to know your paper cutter.
Make Your Own Math: Clip these simple cards and put them into an envelope. Kids make their own math problems and solve them.
Let's Find Out Science Questions: Cut this list of questions into little slips of paper, and keep them in your own "Let's Find Out Science" box--could be a Kleenex box. Your child can select a question to research together. Sample: Why do onions make me cry? etc. Here's a cover graphic for your box.
Math Magic: To play, we spin the spinner (assembly: place a paper brad in the center, stuck through a large paperclip), then the player has to complete that number of math problems drawn from the deck of cards to move the spun number of spaces on the game board. If they answer one incorrect, it's your own house rules that determine the consequence.
Word Whiz: To play, we spin the spinner (assembly: place a paper brad in the center, stuck through a large paperclip), then the player has to make that number of words from the Word Whiz cards (we just spread them out on the table!) to move the spun number of spaces on the board.
