This rummy-style card game is a fun way to help your child practice math skills and color matching. Based on the uber-popular Five Crowns card game for adults, this kid-friendly version also introduces your child to the basic concepts of rummy so they’ll be ready to play that when they’re older. A simple and fun game for the whole family!
A quick heads up if your child tends to be sensitive to losing: When you don’t have a full 5-card run during a turn, you get stuck with something called a Robbie chip. Then at the end of the game if there’s a tie, the person who has the most Robbie chips ends up getting their treasure “stolen” by the Robbies and therefore loses.
Because of the negative connotation of the Robbie chips, some kids don’t like that aspect of the game, so I recommend just leaving that part out entirely until your child is ready for more of a challenge.
