We love to play games as a family. With the clocks turned back and the days turned shorter, more than ever were thinking about indoor activities that don't involve turning on the TV or sitting behind a computer.
One of our favorite games is Uno (close second place includes Old Maid and War). But we quickly found out that little hands have trouble holding all those cards! So, in honor of shorter days and family time I wanted to share this great little trick I discovered.
Save an empty egg carton and flip it over. First, cut off the lid - you won't need that part. Then, cut slits in each round egg-shaped compartment. Now cards can be held in place with no hands! Make one for each little person and they can be easily stored in a game closet or cabinet. (I think I originally saw this idea in an issue of Family Fun magazine, but don't remember for sure who to credit.)
Hope you enjoy many fun, family nights together this fall and winter!
