Cards in a Hat


Materials

  • Hat
  • Playing cards

Directions

  1. Put the hat on the floor in the middle of a room.
  2. Have your child stand at a distance from the hat and try tossing cards one at a time into it.
  3. Keep track of how many make it in, then play again so he can try to improve his record.
  4. For two players, separate the red and black cards.
  5. For three or four players, divide the cards by suit.
  6. Give one set to each child and have the children stand at equal distances from the hat and take turns tossing cards.

  8. When all the cards have been tossed, the player with the most cards in the hat wins the round.
