Big M unwrapped 6 games this Christmas (and no that is not an exaggeration). He played them each once, but has returned to his all time favorite:Phase 10 Twist (affiliate link). So he can be found morning, noon and night at the table with whoever will say yes. This game requires you to hold 10 cards. His 5 year old brain might be able to handle the 8+ game, but his fingers can not. . . I needed to create a card holder.
Can you imagine the possibilities? Go fish, old maid. . . anything that requires your little one to hold cards. Hooray for a simple, cheap (or free) idea! The Lego card holder stays together with the games and Big M pulls it out when he needs it. The cool thing is that he is actually learning to hold cards, because he’ll take 3 or 4 off the holder and fan them out in his hand.
If you are game lovers like us, Phase 10 is a game you should own! We have had Phase 10 in our house for about 15 years and it is still a game that everyone is up for playing. You can have 2 players or 10 and it’s still fun. Plus regular old Phase 10 is only $5. (Phase 10 Twist is more expensive.)
