15 Days of Favourite “Kid” things – Part 7

Day 7:

Uno. What?
It’s a card game by Mattel, it’s been around for 40 years, and it’s easy and fun.  Last year our then 6-year old got really into cards. Crazy Eights, Go Fish…and this game.
Uno is a specialized pack of cards that has colours, numbers, and action cards (Skip, Reverse, Draw Two, Draw Four). Interesting enough for adults, and challenging enough for kids. A 3-year old isn’t going to get it at all, but for 5+ it’s spot on. 
I lose every time, because I always forget to say “last card!”. Every. Single. Time.
I like that it’s a fairly quick game to learn, it doesn’t need batteries, it’s portable, it isn’t a screen, you have to actually interact with people, and it holds kids’ interest.

There’s also Uno Moo! for toddlers, but I’ve never played it so can’t vouch for its awesomeness.
