Thursday Homeschool Resource Day - Link Up - Spot It! Game

We're on Christmas break here and not doing school-y stuff, but we are playing games.  We have always liked visual discernment games such as Blink and Set, and now we have a new one to add to our list:  Spot It!  This was a gift from one of J.'s sisters and it has been fun.  The game consists of circular cards with 8 different pictures on each card.  The trick is that there is only one picture that will match between any two cards.  (For some reason this boggles my mind as to how they figured out how to do that.  When I mentioned my amazement, M. said, with a bit of boredom in her voice, that she was sure there was a computer program which took care of that.)  There are four different games you can play and it takes anywhere from 2 to 8 people.  (Another plus in a large family.)  The games are quick to play and everyone has been enjoying it.  One of the things I like best about it is that to take the card you have to say out loud the picture you are matching.  For some of my children this is extremely good practice for thinking before doing.  I can see it being a great thing to throw in a bag if I know that we will be somewhere there will be waiting.

(Oh, and I'm feeling much, much better.  But, boy, it was a nasty 6 hours followed by another 12 hours of sleeping.)

Now it's your turn. What are your great learning resources to share this week?
