3. Play a Card Game

If that starts to bore them, use the same cards to create another game. Have them try to build something, like a castle for little children or, a fort but older children.

Mom's can keep kids from giving up before they have really tried to build anything, by providing an example of how a few cards can be arranged to support other cards. Words of encouragement help prolong this game as well.
