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.



  Here are some benefits to playing card games with your little one. They improve and encourage:

  • fine motor skills
  • hand-eye coordination
  • social interaction
  • oral language skills
  • problem solving
  • the value of success and disappointment
  • turn taking
  • encouraging others
  • confidence  


Old Farmer is a fun game, and luckily it also has some wonderful educational benefits as well!
