Keeping Those Wigglers Occupied

Living with three little boys, I am always interested in a game or activity that holds their attention for more than  a few minutes and doesn't involve wrestling. I don't have any issues with wrestling, but there are occasions for a quieter, more relaxed activity. Our cousin introduced us to the wonderful game of Spot it. It is supposedly for ages 7 and up but our 5 year old is doing well so far.  Our 2 year old is fascinated with the metal tin container, of course.
This is a great game for family time, hanging out on a rainy afternoon, or waiting in the doctor's office. The objective is to spot the one matching symbol between any 2 cards in the game. Each time you spot it first, you keep the card. The one collecting the largest pile of cards wins. There are 4 variations of the game included and you can play with as few as 2 or as many as 8 players. We struggle to find a game that a variety of ages can play without getting too frustrated. It is also quick so the victory of winning and the agony of defeat are both short-lived.
Spot it is made by blue orange games and Amazon sells this game as well as others that appeal to a larger age group and/or different interests. Check it out, you will be glad you did.
