Challenge Option: Teach someone to play “21.” We played this game at school. It is fun to play at home, too! 

Parent note: You might already know how to play 21. Directions are below. You probably know it as Blackjack.

How to play 21


A deck of cards 


The objective of the game is to have a hand that is worth 21 points (or to have the hand which is closest in value to, but not more than, 21). Kings, queens, jacks, and tens are worth ten points. Aces can be worth 11 or 1. All other cards are worth their face value.

The dealer gives each person (including him or herself) 2 cards. When you get your cards, keep them a secret. The dealer will ask each person in turn (going around a circle, if more than 2 are playing) if he or she wants another card. If he or she answers yes, the dealer gives him or her a third card. Players can continue to ask for cards when it is their turn until they feel like they should stop (i.e., they are getting close to hand that is worth 21 points), or if the value of their hand is greater than 21. 

Players should take turns being the dealer when playing more than one round. For students, having a chance to shuffle (or try to shuffle) and deal is excellent for practicing fine motor skills, taking turns, and being fair.
