3 Card Games That Rock
Posted By Jessica Fisher On October 22, 2010 @ 1:11 pm In Memory Making,TGIF | 24 Comments
I love card games. Of all the games there are to play with your children, they are some of the best. Oh, let me count the ways.
We had a discussion the other night about card games. I asked the kids what their favorite games were to play. Answers bounced all over the place.
Skipbo  – FishPapa and I started playing this over 15 years ago when my French “brother” came to visit. Only then, we called it, “skeep – bo.” It was a few years before the first FishBoy could play it with us. But, I’m thinking we started him (and subsequent children) in on it at around age 6. My guys love to play this together.
Uno  – How OLD is this game? I remember playing it with my cousin Kristin in my Aunt Peg’s basement thirty years ago.
I can’t believe I just said that. How OLD am I?
Uno is a classic; that is for sure.
Blink  is a fast-paced game that even the youngest of people can play. I think our youngest was about three when we started playing. As long as they can count or match shapes and colors, they can play — and win.
And winning is pretty cool when you’re one of the smaller kids on the block.
