This past weekend was Mother’s Day, and I spent my day enjoying it with my kids and grandkids. We had so much fun, but I couldn’t wait for dinner to be over for I had a new game called Fruit Flies to share with the kids. I wasn’t sure as to how my kids would enjoy the game since sometimes it’s hard to even get them to play any other game besides basketball! But to my surprise, they really enjoyed it.
The concept behind the Fruit Flies game is for each player to receive a card that has three elements: a number, a color and a fruit. Everyone tries to win three more cards that each match a different element of their initial card. To claim a card, you must be the first to cover it up with your hand. But then you must recall the three elements on the card in order without peeking! Now it took JJ some time to catch on because he was the youngest in the group, but before we knew it he understood the game. It took us about 30 minutes to play, and we must have played the Fruit Flies game at least three times! A few things I noticed while playing is that JJ identified all the numbers, colors and fruit every time a card was dealt to him. This lets me know that not only was he playing the game, but he was learning as well!! That’s a plus within itself!!! I love how the SimplyFun game brought everyone together for family night, I do agree that their games are not only fun, educational, bonding and lots of laughter, but they are memorable moments you’ll experience with family and friends.
