Lenten Family Activity - Spoons (it’s a card game)
One of the things we’re doing this Lent to connect with each other is play a game after dinner. Right now, we’re playing a super easy and fun card game - Spoons.
Deck of cards and spoons
Place one less spoon in the middle of the table than people. Dealer deals four cards to every player.
Each player tries to make four of a kind. The dealer takes a card off the top of the deck to have five cards in their hand, removes one and passes it face down to the left. Each player discards to the person on their left.
The last player places their discard into a trash pile. Cards are picked up and passed quickly around the table until someone gets four of a kind and quietly takes a spoon from the center. Once the player with four of a kind takes a spoon, anyone can take a spoon. The player left without a spoon is out. If at any time the draw cards run out, pause to reshuffle the trash pile and keep going.
You can go as fast or as slow as your kids are comfortable with.It’s so much fun!
