What a card
This fun card game will boost concentration and observation skills.
- Ask the girls to sit on chairs in a circle. Give each girl a different card from a normal deck of cards.
- Shuffle the rest of the deck and pull a card from the top. Show the girls what is on it, but do not call out the suit being shown. If a girl has a card with the same suit as the one being shown, she will need to move one chair to the left. If there isn’t a spare chair she must sit on the person next to her.
- Draw another card and repeat. All girls whose suit is shown must move regardless of anyone sitting on them or under them.
- The girls continue to move around the circle until they get back to their original chair.
