Candy Land

For Family Home Evening, we decided to teach Tab how to play Candy Land. We haven't really tried to teach him any board games yet, so we weren't quite sure how it was going to go or if he would like it. Well, he loved it. He has asked me to play Candy Land several times since then. He just loved pulling the cards and trying to find which square he was supposed to move his little guy to.

Every time he went to move his piece, he would grab Jason's. So, finally we switched his and Jason's pieces. It didn't seem to matter because then he started grabbing the piece that was now Jason's. oh well.

We really had a lot of fun. Now I'm on the lookout for more fun games that he would be able to play.

Peter and Miriam love Hi-Ho Cherry-O. Good one for teaching counting and numbers, too.
