How to use them:

Game 1 – Who’s number is greater than or less than the others

Each player pulls one eyeball from the bag. They then read the number on their eyeball. Who ever has the greatest or least (depending on how you are playing the game) wins all the eyeballs that round.

Keep pulling eyeballs until they are all gone.

The winner is whoever has the most eyeballs. Play several rounds adding the point til you reach a given max points (25, 50 ect)

Game 2 – Math Facts

Each player pulls 2 numbers and then adds, subtracts, multiply or divides the numbers depending on what you are working on.

For added challenge see how many they can get right in a minute or five minutes.
