Daily Activity Challenge #2: Build a House of Cards

If you have a deck of cards around, you can participate in this activity. Plus, it’s another game where all ages can participate!


  • Decks of cards

Object of Activity: Build the highest structure you are able to only using cards.

How to Play: Give everyone a stack of playing cards, and instruct each of them to build a tower with the cards. You could do this in teams, or individually. You could also set a time limit (like 15 minutes) for them to complete the structure.

Skills Practiced: Patience, control, and team building (if working in groups)
