Meet The Card Family:


And Their Friends:


Let’s Meet Players:

  • A pack of old cards, one or ten were missing. Ours were mini-cards but any cards will do.
  • Pipecleaners.
  • Bottle Caps. Anything round will work for heads.
  • Markers.
  • A Paper Punch.
  • A Blob of Glue.
  • Mini Magnets.

Let’s Play The Game:

  1. Cut your pipe cleaner into four bits and bend the bits in half.
