Playing Cards

If anything could out-shine playdough, it might be a deck of cards. Small and portable, suitable for all ages in the family, quick and easy to learn and yet still challenging enough to merit world tournaments, Playing Cards have been traditional fun for hundreds of years. Card games require the ability to Take Turns, Follow Directions, Be Patient & Wait, Speak precisely, and Listen carefully. Start with the simplest games of Spoons or Old Maid after supper to improve Fine Motor Skills while they learn to hold the cards. Then, move on to the more complicated games of Crazy Eights and Go-Fish that promote Memory Skills and learning to Make Decisions and live with the results. Before you know it, even young children can practice Math skills in counting, addition and subtraction as they play Spades or Rummy or Poker right along with teens and adults. Overall, cards really are one of the very best ways to practice Social Skills in a friendly family-oriented way.
