Free Printable Card Games and Board Games

Calling all DIYers, parents, homeschoolers, teachers, babysitters, day care providers, grandparents and those who love to save money and get free things–have I got some great links for you today! Hundreds of free printable board games and card games.
I’ve come to the conclusion that not only is it possible to print just about anything from the Internet, it’s also possible to find free printables for just about anything on the Internet. As always, I’ve explored each of the links and they are safe to print. You may need to turn off pop-up blockers and have Adobe Acrobat or some other PDF reader installed on your computer. But aside from that, it’s point, click, print and enjoy!

These free printable links have board games, bingo games, word games, puzzles games, memory games, card games, lotto games, game tokens, game spinners, instructions and even free printable dice (which could be used as an excellent way to teach 3D shapes and geometric solids…alas, once a teacher, always on the prowl for a lesson plan.) When I say that this list in no way covers all the free printable games, I’m not exaggerating.

I love the fact that most all of these games print in black and white, because you know what that means? Free printable coloring pages also. If you have craft coloring activity fiends in your house or classroom, you’ll know that they love any opportunity to color. My youngest even insists on coloring all the illustrations in her books. So these free printable games give us more bang for the buck, well, not the buck in this case! Kids will love printing, cutting and pasting and assembling these free printable games. These make good little gifts, classroom materials, teaching supplies, babysitting boredom busters, day care and grandparents rainy day activities, car trip activities, you name it.
