We love games here as well! Your solution for holding cards is adorable. Great idea. Wow, your little ones have already done so many more crafts than we ever did over the years. 🙂
Thanks for sharing so many creative ideas.
What a great idea! My kids will love this, thank you!
Glad you’re going to do it. Cool to check our your site too.
My little ones need something like this! Uno is kind of becoming a joke!
I hear ya, Laurel. We play go fish with cards on the ground and everyone’s hand exposed. Not any more.
This is such a smart idea. love it!
I hope you find success with it. Thanks for checking in. 🙂
Oh this is REALLY REALLY NEAT!!!! I love this… 🙂
Thanks for checking it out. I just linked up on your page. I am working on creating a link party page on my site and will make sure to include you.
What a great idea! My kids are always showing me their cards! I found you through Craftomaniac. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Now that she can hold the cards, my daughter has asked to play every day. Thanks for checking in with me. Let me know if you end up making it.
I’m visiting you from Skip to My Lou. I’d love to invite you to link up with us for Fun Stuff Fridays. http://www.toysinthedryer.com/2012/01/fun-stuff-fridays-7.html
What a fabulous idea…perfect for those little ones that have such difficulty holding the cards with their little fingers. Love it. I am now a follower of your blog and look forward to return visits. I invite you to join me as well on my blog at http://atastefultouch.blogspot.com
This is a great idea. It would be a conversation starter at our card game night. I’m going to have to try this out. Thanks for sharing!
Stop by and see us sometime
This is so cute! I started my blog for the same reasons… I want to be more focused this year! I hope you’ll stop by my party…
Wow great idea and super clever solution! Thanks for linking it up to A Crafty Soiree, I’ve featured it in this week’s!
What an awesome idea! Lol, I remember playing card games with my parents, and having to spread the cards out on the floor so I could see them all. It’s tough holding cards.:)
I have RA & this will help my clumsy, aching hands hold cards
I used the lid off of my Activia (yogurt) and cut the bottom off of it and stuck it together with a metal paper fastener! Works great!!! and only took me 2 min to put together! Thanks for the inspiration!
OMG what an easy and fun way
my girl just started to play cards and her hands are to small to hold them 😀
i am pretty sure we are going to do this within the next days
thanks for sharing
Yay! I’m so glad. We made this a couple years ago now and the youngest ones still use them. I think without them, we wouldn’t have been able to introduce card games so early on in their lives. Have fun with it!
I’m so excited. My granddaughter has hemiplegia and can’t use her right hand (arm or right leg) she loves to play cards but can’t hold them. I’m going to make this for her for Christmas!!!
Yay! this brings so much happiness to my heart. I’m so happy you found this solution and really hope it works for you.
