Who knew that a simple classic card game could be so fun and beneficial too! A session of Old Maid helps with the development of early math learning and social skills. Old Maid teaches children recognition of quantities, matching pairs and sorting, listening and memory skills. Kids spend time having fun and learning how to take turns, and helps to create a sense of good sportsmanship. Kindness is essential to success in life. Cooperative games blend playful fun with a chance to learn compassion and practice kindness toward others. Common goals teach kids to work together. Cooperative games enable players to win or lose as a team, which builds resilience and strengthens friendships. Nothing is more important than meaningful connections. Cooperative games are an engaging way to turn off the screens and join together for face-to-face play. Cooperative games emphasize play, not competition. Kids work together, help each other and, most importantly, they play for FUN! Since 1983 play has been the heart and soul of Peaceable Kingdom. Silly play, special play, wholehearted play! We create experiences to help kids play well together, so they can play well in the world. Our games and gifts connect kids and families, encourage learning and self-expression and let imaginations soar. And if a piece of your Peaceable Kingdom game or gift gets lost in all that fun, we will gladly send you a replacement piece - just contact us directly with your need! When play comes from the heart and feeds the soul, that’s Peaceable Kingdom.
