Kid Friendly Playing Cards FREEBIE and a giveaway

I love math games and my first graders always love math games.  All you need is a deck of cards to practice a variety of basic math skills.  However, most of my decks of cards are missing at least one card...What happens to them?  Anyway, I put together this fun little FREEBIE of kid-friendly playing cards.  They're kid-friendly for a few reasons.  First, the size is smaller than typical playing cards, they're perfect for small hands.  The kiddos can hold them easily as well as shuffle and deal them.  Secondly, instead of the traditional hearts, clubs, spades, and diamonds, these cards feature backpacks, glue bottles, crayons, and apples.  Also, the cards are numbered 1-10, there are no jokers, aces, jacks, queens, or kings to have to weed out.  Finally, since we all know that cards go missing somehow all the time, you can easily reprint any cards that get lost.  

You can snag this little FREEBIE in my TpT store.  AND...if you leave some friendly feedback on this FREEBIE, and leave a comment on my Face Book page that you left feedback on TpT, you have a chance to win both of my "Get Your Year in Gear" packs.  One provides perfect practice for math fact fluency, the other provides a fun way to learn sight words fluently.  You can check them out in my TpT store too.
