With the dark, cold days of January, more than ever we’re 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).
We quickly found out that little hands often 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.
Scrub it well with soap and hot water.
First, cut off the lid – you won’t need that part.
Then, flip it over and 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 found this idea in an issue of Disney’s Family Fun magazine several years ago.)
Hope you enjoy many fun, family nights together this winter!
