Go Bug!

The younger boy dragged me to the kitchen table last night, babbling away about some game he'd come up with. After I sat down, I realized he wanted to play Go Fish! using some insect cards I'd bought years ago for the older boy. But since these were insects, he was calling it Go Bug!

Easy enough.

"Do you have a paper wasp?" he asked.

"Nope. Go bug! Do you have a carpenter ant?" I replied.

After three rounds, I realized something that should have been obvious.

Every card was different. These were identification cards, not playing cards. If we'd kept playing, we would have pulled all the cards and had no matches.

I'm thinking we'll try a different game tonight: learn about biological classification and identifying the correct order of the insect. I don't imagine it'll go over all that well, but you never know.

[smile] It's hard to play a matching game without two of anything.

And, yeah... I can't imagine that ordering is going to be nearly as fun. But if it turns out to be, please share!
