Have some FUN with Cards!




A simple deck of cards has been providing hours of fun.

On Easter afternoon my children invited some neighbor kids (also homeschooled!) over to play their favorite card game.

Salute The King is easy and hilarious.



You have to be quick and creative.


 We recommend a deck of LARGE FACED cards to make it easier to play.


My neighbor said her children have been playing it constantly since we taught them.... we also taught them how to play Garbage (some call it Trash) - which is great for big and little kids (it's super for teaching ordinal numbers, by the way.)



What's your favorite card game?

I need instructions! :) Those look like such fun. We love silly games. Our favorite card game is "Phase 10" Kei and I have an ongoing game.
