"Exact Change."

The Reedettes and I have had a blast playing games lately. It helps that we have found a few that really work for all of us. Our favorite game now that has proven to have tremendous education and real living value is Exact Change.

We have spent many evenings playing this game. It has really helped (in a super fun way) to calculate change with coins and one dollar bills. I give this game two thumbs up as do my children! We love it! It has a  “UNO” feel to the game with a couple of twists. Good family game.

Rory's Story Cubes

Another game we recently began playing is Rory’s Story Cubes. What fun! My kids have loved playing this game. There are nine dice with different pictures on each side. The idea is to create a sequential story from beginning to end USING the pictures on the cubes.  Ethan and Sydney have blown me away by their ability to use some of the pictures as metaphors. Ethan’s humor comes out strongly, as do his fears of real things but his fears managed to find a positive spin in his story that lead to a great outcome. I’m very impressed. I think that there are endless possibilities for this game.
