We are constantly looking for fun things to do in bed with the kids. Being on bed rest really limits my activity and I don’t want to be completely out of the loop with my babies. So, we started playing cards and whipping out old boardgames.

Over the weekend, we have been obsessing over Ratuki – which is on sale right now on Amazon for $5!! This is a great stocking stuffer guys.



Basically, everyone gets a deck separated by color. The numbers range from 1 to 5. The point of the game is to make piles. The pile starts with 1 and you can move up or down based on one card. This is very easy for kids to follow. Once the 5 card is placed, that player WINS the pile. You count all the cards at the end of the round. Winner hits 100 first.

Liam partnered up with Bill for a few rounds and then was able to play on his own.


My husband the ham.


Natalie does NOT like losing… but she gets over it pretty quickly. Ratuki is a FAST paced game. There are no turns. You just keep throwing down cards and screaming Ratuki every time you place the 5 card down.

Again – if you are looking for a stocking stuffer, this is it. 🙂
