Ugh! Only 51 cards in this deck. Where oh where could that last card have disappeared to? I don't know about you, but while I was growing up, that was the question that was constantly cropping up. We had dozens of different decks of cards, but so many of them had a card or two missing so they just wouldn't get used or at the most we would use them for building card houses (which is so much fun, I can't recommend them more).
What a waste of card decks though when there are so many awesome kid's card crafts that we could have been doing with them. I really like the bag made from colorful UNO cards, but my favorite is the 52 reasons I love you craft that my lovely wife made for me that is also listed on the page. Of course it could have easily been a 51 reasons playing card craft instead if she had used a deck missing a card. So enjoy these playing card crafts for kids, because cards don't need to just be used for Rummy.
