Apples to Apples Kids

Apples to Apples Get everyone together and be prepared to laugh!

Apples to Apples is a fast and easy game to play for the whole family. Anywhere from four to ten players can play and the more the merrier!

Each game is usually over in about half an hour. The suggested age range is 7-10 but younger or older can play. There is reading required, but the little ones can be read to and this just provides another way for them to learn how to read. It is a great way to find out what some words mean to them.

There are different versions of Apples to Apples that you can choose from. The people and places in the other versions are suited to certain eras, so keep that in mind when looking for the right one for your group.

For a totally different spin on this game: let each person turn their cards into a story. The one rule: No one gets to interrupt and change it. This story completely belongs to the one who holds the cards. This is a fantastic way to enhance children's creativity and imagination. (Probably not a good bedtime ritual, since everyone will be laughing for a while.)

Object of the game: Collect four green apple cards and be crowned the king of the orchard.

How to play the game: All players are dealt five red apple cards. The judge has a green apple card. Each player chooses a card with a word on it that is the closest match to the word on the judge's card. If the judge selects your card as the best match, you keep the green apple card; if you win four you're king of the orchard.

With every hand there is a new judge so everyone gets a turn to be the judge. To add a twist, make the worst match the winner of the hand or don't count the last card played when choosing a winner for the hand. This gets players moving quickly and thinking outside the box.

Why parents love this game:

  • All ages can play

  • No batteries needed

  • Encourages learning vocabulary.

  • Reinforces color recognition for younger children

  • It is a great family activity, either for story time or game time

  • Is a fast and easy game.

  • Children can feel good about themselves when they legitimately beat the grown-ups!
