Activity of the Week – Salute!

What you will need:

  • a deck of cards

How to play:

  1. Remove face cards.
  • Sit in a circle and take turns being the judge.
  • Each player picks one card from the deck – don’t look at the card.
  • When the judge says “Salute!” the players put their cards on their forehead.
  • The judge adds up the numbers on each card to find the “sum” (the total) and announces it to the group – use a calculator if you need help.
  • Players try to guess the amount on their card based on the cards other players are holding.
