So tonight my family broke in a new deck of cards. I shuffled the cards a few times and then the girls and I worked on the shapes and numbers. The symbols are just so easy to use to count from one to ten. Then they can be sorted according to the shapes. Olivia made four piles one for each of the hearts, diamonds, spades, and popcorn symbols! I know it should be clubs but I can’t seem to get her to say clubs!
Cards can be used to play so many games with kids from matching, color sorting, math and so on!
After Livy started to lose interest my husband and I played a few rounds of rummy. 🙂
