Recently during a cold spell, The Hubs and I went through a shoebox of playing cards from my Mom's house, then we also went through our decks. We counted and matched and threw out incomplete decks. Our married kids had both told us they needed some playing cards so we were able to give them some of the numerous ones we had. The rest of the incomplete decks I saved to make all kinds of things with the help of Pinterest!
Ornaments, little boxes and photo mats
It was a fun Christmas Eve afternoon activity after all the presents were done!
