15. PLAY GRANDMA’S FA­VORITE GAME.

FamilyFun - - NEST -

Chase Mcfad­den, a blog­ger who runs the site Stuffkidswrite.com, con­nects the gen­er­a­tions in his fam­ily via crib­bage, an old-timey card game taught to him by his own grand­fa­ther. “I played with my grandpa, our kids play with their grand­par­ents, and they are for­tu­nate enough to have a great-grand­mother to play with as well.” The game teaches math, sorta, and strat­egy, kinda, but mostly it’s a way to bridge the gen­er­a­tions—even if those gen­er­a­tions aren’t mess­ing around. “Don’t har­bor any thoughts of a sweet old lady pa­tiently and gen­tly teach­ing her great-grand­chil­dren the ways of the game,” Mcfad­den says. “She plays for keeps.”
