Teaching math with playing cards

First take out all cards that are not numbers, then palce one 8 in one pile and another 8 in another pile, keep going till all cards are divided into two decks. 
Tape the cards from one of the decks to a window or wall, then give ur kid/kids one card at a time with tape on the back fro mthe other deck and let them match to the same one on the wall or window.
