Ever since the boys were little, we’ve packed this on trips…

Fun card games. We play them on flights, before dinner, at the Airbnb, at restaurants, on the beach — they’re perfect for those in-between times when kids need a little entertainment, but you’re not in the mood to deal with phone angst. And cards easily fit into a purse or bag and weigh essentially nothing.

Our three current favorites are:
Guess Who (always hilarious; Toby once asked, “Does your person look like John C. Reilly?”*)
Uno (a classic)
Too Many Monkeys (easy to learn and fast paced)

What about you? What do you always bring? (This is the first thing I pack for myself.)

* I have literally no idea how Toby knows who John C. Reilly is.

P.S. The weird thing we do on vacations, and one of the best parts of trips.
