Old Farmer Card Game
Old Farmer is a simple game, perfect for nursery children, and while the rules are very straight-forward and easy to follow, the game actually offers some wonderful skill builders.
Children draw cards from one another in an effort to find a match to something they already have in their hand. This is great skill practice because it works the children’s sorting and visual discrimination skills. Sorting is a mathematical skill and visual discrimination is a precursor to reading and writing.
