Always Have On Hand: Deck Of Cards

Every mom should carry a deck of playing cards in her purse. When waiting at the doctor's office, for a meal at a restaurant, or 101 other reasons little ones can get restless, a deck of cards will always save the day. Whether you play a game of war or build a house of cards or practice counting, your children will forget they are bored. Three cheers for Mama!
