Card games for kids


Number of Players: 2 to 5

Age Range: 4 years and older

Materials: one standard deck of cards

How to Play:

    • The cards are shuffled and dealt out completely. Some players may receive one card more than others. The players put them in a pile face down. They are not allowed to see the cards.

 

    • The first player turns over the first card of his pile and puts it face up, in the center of the table.

 

    • The next players continue to add a face up card to the open pile in the center of the table, until somebody turns up a Jack (Knave).

 

    • When a Jack is turned up, all the players try to slap the Jack as quickly as they can. The player who is first to put his hand on the Jack wins the face up pile and can add all the cards from the face up pile to his own face down pile.

 

    • The player on the left continues to make a new face up pile and the game continues.

 

    • If a player runs out of cards, he has one change to get new cards by slapping the first Jack that shows up. If he isn’t the first to hit the card, he is out of the game.

 

    • The winner is the first player to collect all the cards.

Quick Fall Outdoor Activity

Nature Arts & Crafts


Get the kids outdoor with this fun activity:

One of my favorites for the fall: We go for a nice hike in the woods and bring a bag to collect small items like pretty leaves, acorns, twigs, maple seeds, ferns and all kind of other stuff you can find out there.

Then at home the kids take a crafts paper that is pretty strong and make a collage of all their finds with lots of glue.

Let dry very well, and you have a very pretty art product --> All Natural ;-)
