Crazy States

Learning state abbreviations can be fun with this game! Take 26 index cards and cut them in half. Write each letter of the alphabet twice on the 52 cards - be sure to use capital letters!
Shuffle the cards and deal each player 2 cards each. Each player tries to make a state abbreviation with their cards. If the player can't make an abbreviation, they choose one card from the deck and play passes to the next player. If they can make one, they choose 2 cards, and keep doing so until they can no longer make an abbreviation.
The player with the most abbreviations is the winner!
