The other day, I posted a blog letting you know that Marita Gentry (Illustrator of The Cajun Cornbread Boy) and I have created some very cool cards to accompany our newest children’s picture book, and Madame Poulet and Monsieur Roach. We created playing cards based on the characters in the book for children to play with at home, in the classroom, or in the library. The cards are now available for printing and download from my website. You can find them here in the Book Activities section. Scroll to the bottom.
You’ll need to print the cards as well as the instructions. I have adapted the cards to play the following games:
* Madame Poulet Memor (based on Memory or Concentration)
* Slap Roach! (based on Slap Jack)
* Old Hen (based on Old Maid)
* Go Roach (based on Go Fish!)
* Crazy Chicken (based on Crazy Eights)
* H-E-N or R-O-A-C-H (a variation based on P-I-G or D-O-N-K-E-Y)
There are two original games I created as well:
* Roach Party!
* Pass the Poulet!
The games are so much fun! Try them out!
Until next time…
