One of the most investigated subjects currently is children’s mind development and analytical skills. More and more studies are being made and more lessons, programs, and games are being developed to boost the early stages of growth and increase existing skills.

There are more options and possibilities now than ever, starting with different educational facilities suited for different levels of development, and carrying on with special TV shows, books, and games. These games are specially built to work on the growing and developing areas in a child’s mind.

These skills can be developed in all kinds of different ways and not necessarily in a structural program or a special kindergarten. It can also be done in a simple and fun way of gaming. Because there are hundreds of mind developing games for children, in this article, we will focus on card games.

Card games can come in different shapes and sizes and at different difficulty levels. The most basic card game is the card memory game. The game is played with half a deck or less spread on the table, while each card is facing down. Each player, on his turn, chooses to peek at one card at a time to eventually form a couple or groups (based on what was decided earlier to be a group). This game helps to develop the child’s memory skills and his ability to divide logically the symbols into groups.

Another game similar to the memory game, but one that focuses and handles a completely different area of your child's brain is the group game. In this game, the deck of cards is divided by the number of players so all the players receive an equal amount of cards. Each player on his turn form groups (based on what was decided earlier to be a group) and place them on the table. The players’ goal at this game is to get rid of their entire cards by adding them to the groups that already exist on the table. The players have the total freedom to change the position of the cards on the table as long as none of them gets left out of a group.
