Happy Diwali everybody! Diwali is the Hindu festival of light that to honors Rama-chandra. Thank you to all of the volunteers that made our Diwali special!
We love the game Sushi Go! It’s a pass and play card game that’s focused on set collection and counting.
Rules: Deal cards to all players, each person picks a single card to put in front of them and they are revealed at the same time. You then pass your remaining hand to your neighbor. This continues until you are out of cards. Then you score the game and play again for a total of three rounds.
Cost: $12 on Amazon.
Time: 20 minutes.
Modifications for K-1: I remove the ‘chopstick’ cards as I think they are a bit too confusing for the average 5-6 year old, at least on their first few games. You can also purchase the ‘party’ version which increases your options greatly!
Can it be played if pieces go missing: You could reasonably lose about half of the deck and still be able to play.
Is this a game only kids would like: I think this is a fun, light game that would be fun with adults, but I think it really shines with kids.
Today we received our agar dishes! We collected germs from 5 locations: the trash can, the bathroom floor, Akiva’s nose, Catarina’s mouth and our drinking fountain. We took guesses as to which location has the most germs and we will check when we get back on Monday which location is officially the grossest!
Update: Our germs have grown and bloomed. The results were truly disgusting. Far and away, the grossest and highest collection of germs is the drinking fountains, followed by the trash cans, then Akiva’s nose, the toilet floor, and cleanest of all and barely registering any germs is Catarina’s mouth! Photos will be uploaded soon!
