Sleeping Queens Game

Our family loves games. Well, sometimes I do too, but most others in our family love games. I do have to agree… it’s so much fun to connect and spend precious time together. I have a short attention span, and get antsy. But this one has a hold on me!

So… we got this game from my mom a while back, and the kids played it for a long time. My husband played with them. Then even I played with them. It’s so much fun for all of us.

What’s really cool is a 6 year old invented it. Can you imagine? She totally rocks!

The game helps with math too – you come up with matching pairs of numbers and addiction facts! So if you have a 1 and a 5, and a 6 then presto you have an equation:

1 + 5 = 6

…and you can exchange all 3 cards for 3 more cards. The idea is you find kings to awaken the sleeping queens. There’s more addition – if the sleeping queens’ face values add up to 50 YOU WIN!! This is great for a budding mathematician 1st grade to 5th grade or older! 🙂

It’s fun when something can completely grab your attention so you can just be together.

That’s what it’s all about!

Roller Blades and an Umbrella

Lately here in North Texas, we’ve been hiding inside while the sky dumps down on us. Today, it did just that. But she wanted to play anyway. So we pulled out the roller blades… and the umbrella. Then the sun popped out! I think it just needed us to act dry and dress in bright cheery colors to encourage it. That’s what we’ll believe anyway. And we got to play, which is the important part.

We were going for a serious “wish I could play in the rain” vibe, which I think she nailed!

The second we stepped inside, I got a notification on my phone that it would start raining again. I think we’d figure that out, but I guess it’s nice to know anyway?
