My parents purchased a great board game for Connor called Lego Creator. It has become quite the favorite game in our house. Connor is great at it and wins almost as much as I do. Al wins one here and there and poor Mamaw & Papaw (my parents) have not won yet but are good sports and keep trying.
One rule of the game is the most colorful person goes first. Connor always wins this as we play at night after the girls go to bed and Connor is always in his pajamas. We had not discussed playing Lego Creator since the previous night so we were surprised to find Connor moping when he came from putting on his pajamas. He had glanced over to Al and noticed Al's very colorful pajama pants. By the time I had put 2 & 2 together, Connor had already started counting the many colors in his pants. He then moved over to Al's pants to start counting his colors.
Turned out that Al was short 3 colors so Connor gets to go first, right? Nope, the race was on. Al was off to find additional colors to add to his outfit. It started with a shirt and tie and then I helped Connor find some extra colors. This went on for about 1/2 hour...it was sooo much fun!!!
Here are the results:
