It was a rainy rainy day here. We got out for puddle jumping and leaf collecting, but we were mainly housebound.


In the late afternoon we played some games. We’ve been playing snap and animal dominos for almost a year, and in the last few weeks the silliness and restlessness has almost faded away (well for the first game at least). If you’ve played games with small children you know what I’m talking about.

Snap with two box fresh two-year-olds was interesting. Supermarket Sweep level of excitement every time they played a card, and the world was over when they ran out of them.

Games of animal and regular dominos go smoother now. They like the clack of the regular dominos and counting the spots.



With Christmas approaching I’m looking for suggestions of what games would they enjoy now and/or grow into over the next year. Any ideas?

    Snail’s Pace Race (non-competitive), the Eric Carle games–we had Brown Bear and the Very Hungry Caterpillar one, and card games like Old Maid, Go Fish, and Memory. I think that’s about what we did around 3. Also Chutes + Ladders but I really didn’t enjoy that one, especially since the kids wanted *all* the players to get to the end. Oh it’s so awful when you’re so close and someone gets a chute…
