Can We Play Another Game?

I think my kids are finally starting to understand games – not so much the concept of winning and losing, but the idea that there’s an intended outcome to an activity. The iPad has definitely played a part in this discovery. The simple act of reading The Lorax has become game-like to Jason and Jenna. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing, especially when I hear Jason asking “can we play another game?” less than 30 seconds after starting the first game. But, on a more positive note, their interest in games extends beyond the digital realm.

Today I finished making a new game for J & J – a matching game. While it’s not an iPad game, it is still tactile, portable and (I hope) engaging.
