Card games are a great way to spend time with your children – there are hundreds of different games to choose from – grab a book from the library or search the internet if you need ideas. Choose something age-appropriate, and take the time to teach your child how to play and the rules involved. Usually you just need a standard deck of 52 playing cards.

As your children get older they will often learn new card games from their friends. Ask them to teach you how to play so you can enjoy these games as a family as well.
