My hubby is a smart guy. I have no problem admitting that. But I also have to admit that there is a small part of me that gets a little kick out of seeing him totally confounded. And when it’s our 4 year old daughter doing the confounding it’s a little extra funny.
So what is doing the confounding? A fun little game we got called Square by Square.
Think Tetris meets building blocks. You have a set of blue and green blocks, each one in various shapes. You have a set of cards. The goal is to take all the irregularly shaped pieces and make the image on the card in a way that fills the game board.
Sound easy? It’s not.
At least not for my husband. You’d think that for someone who is smart, has played so much Tetris and loves LEGO’s that it would be easy. But he over thinks it and stares at it and gets frustrated.
My four year old? She could care less. She starts putting down the pieces and moving them around and trying things out until she gets it. Penguin. H. Pinwheel. Tall Y. Runner. Dog. I’ll be honest, the pictures on the cards sometimes look nothing like the description, but my daughter just looks at the picture and goes to work. She doesn’t get all of them, but she gets more than the hubby. And like MasterCard, some things are just priceless.
