A deck of cards works well as flashcards.  You may either remove the face cards
or assign them values (11, 12, 0).  Shuffle the deck, then turn over 2 cards to
randomly practice multiplication facts (or addition or subtraction).  With 2
people, play War--take turns finding the products, keeping the cards if
correct; then the person with the biggest pile at the end is the winner.
