Fairy Queen Card Game: Looking for a new card game your kids can play? Fairy Queen serves up two games in one beautifully illustrated deck. Kids can play a version of Memory, flipping over cards to get a match. Or they can split the deck between players and compete to see who can get the most matches. No matter which way you play, tally up points to determine the winner. The forest-inspired flora and fauna count for two points per pair, while the fairy matches count for five points. Find the Fairy Queen herself for a ten point boost. Kids learn skip counting by both twos and fives without any complaints about math.
Driven Pocket Series Set: It’s no surprise to see this post featured in yet another month’s most popular posts. These tiny toys cost next to nothing, come with a small vehicle, three pieces of road that can connect, and even some tiny road signs. Collecting them and making various combinations can keep kids entertained for hours while making minimal noise to avoid disturbing parents stuck working from home. And these tiny toys clean up easily and take up only a small fraction of space, all without any need for batteries or screen time.
Clue Junior: If your kids need a problem to solve not related to any current pandemics, look no further than the younger version of the popular Clue game. Kids need minimal reading skills to solve the disappearance of the cake by one of six brightly colored characters. They need to discern who ate the cake, with what drink, and in which room. By visiting each room and looking under pieces of furniture and figures, kids can collect clues in the classic whodunnit. Made for two to four players ages five years and up, kids can also play on their own if necessary.
