My girls are 11, 9 and 6. Some of our favorite card games:
- UNO - It's hard to find a game that all three ages can play well. This one works. You just need to recognize numbers and colors. The older they are, the more strategy they can play. But in the end, like most card games, it's the luck of the draw.
- Old Maid - What's more fun that sticking someone with Old Maid? I'm not very sneaky, so my kids read my face pretty well. It's the kid version of a poker face. And, finally, my kids are old enough not to start this game with, "That's not fair, I got the old woman."
- Would You Rather - My kids love this one, and I love the inevitable laughter. The card game is silly, but fun. It's a choice between would you rather scenarios. There are no winners or points, just pure fun. Example: Would you rather not be able to hear anything or not be able to taste anything?
- Apples to Apples - There are green cards with themes and red cards with random words. You throw down your best match of theme and word and the judge (the person throwing down the theme) picks the best one. So much fun.
Hope you are enjoying the holidays.
