Spy Games

Who doesn't want to be a detective?

Let the kids take one big cardboard box and cut out two holes big enough so they can put their hands in the box.

Now somebody puts something in the box and the detective has to guess what it is.

Some ideas to put in the box:

- A soft inflated balloon
- Cooked spaghetti
- Pine cone
- Slime
- Sticky hand

Let them come up with better ideas!

Go Fish Card Game

Go Fish card game is another easy to learn card game for kids. It’s a chance, concentration and memory game the children will enjoy playing.

The older children will improve their memorization by trying to remember what cards the other players have or have been asking for.






card game go fish


Number of Players: 2 to 6 players

Age Range: 5 years and older

Materials: one standard deck of cards, or the special Go Fish cards with pictures

How to Play:

    • The goal of the game is to collect sets of 4 matching cards (for example, 4 kings).

 

    • With two or three players, each player gets 7 cards and by 4 or more players, each player gets 5 cards. The remaining cards are put on the table face down to form the Fishing pond.

 

    • The players sort their cards into groups of the same number or picture. Make sure none of the players shows the others their cards. Keep them hidden at all times!

 

    • The player left of the dealer starts by asking any other player for a card to complete one of his sets. For example if the player has two sevens, he can ask the other player for sevens. If this player has sevens he has to give them to the requester and the requester can continue asking other players for cards. If the requester asks for a card the player doesn’t have, the player answers:”Go Fish!” And the requester has to take one card from the fishing pond and his turn is over.

 

    • Now the player who said “Go Fish” can ask other players for cards until he also gets “Go Fish” as answer.

 

    • When a player collects all four matching cards (for example, the four kings), he or she puts them down on the table, face up, so the other children can see what he has collected.

 

  • The winner of Go Fish is the first person with nothing left in his hand, but only complete sets of matching cards.
