Recently we started to teach Immy how to play Concentration with a modified set of Wiggles cards. At the moment we only use about 8 pairs instead of the whole pack and, as this is the first time she has ever played a game involving turn taking, we just play turn about without the extra turns when you make a pair. Though it wont be long until we are using the whole deck, Immy is great at remembering where each card has been found, outsmarting Dad 101 or myself on more than one occasion!
I love the mobility of card games (especially on holidays), it is so easy to keep a pack of cards in your bag to bring out whenever the need for playful distraction is required. Or in the case of the photos above, perfect for taking a break from a painting project (for Facebook fans, that is a sneak peek of the new green study that you can see, I told you it was bright!) For other games great for developing short term memory, check out this post from the archives.
Favourite posts from last week…
Marita’s choice (found here) certainly makes learning fun and turns things upside down and around about!
Amanda’s pick is here, thanks to a fab set of blocks and an amusing story 🙂
And I love this post as it is all about creating memorable childhood moments, and that is what I am all about.
With just a few days left for voting, if you have not yet done so I would really appreciate two clicks of your time to vote for Childhood 101 as Kidspot’s Top Blog.
Sending love and hugs for a playful week ahead,
