Want your kids to put down the video game controllers and try some low-tech fun that the whole family can enjoy? Card games are your best bet. They’re portable, don’t require a power source and can unlock the door to imagination and improve problem-solving skills. Here are three of our favorite card games for kids.

Taco vs. Burrito

Created by a 7-year-old, Taco vs. Burrito is a card game where players compete to create the weirdest meal.Amazon

This food-friendly game was reportedly developed by a 7-year-old boy and initially funded by Kickstarter (with the investment goal being reached in just a couple hours). It's play-tested for all ages - players draw cards and put "ingredients" into competitor's taco and burrito meals. Maybe it's a wise idea to keep some Pepto-Bismol nearby.

Kids Against Maturity

This “age appropriate toilet humor” play off Cards Against Humanity vows to be a “connecting block” between kids, tweens, teens and adults.Amazon

I admit I'm super curious about any game that proudly flies the "Toilet-Humor-Land" banner so proudly. Each set has more than 500 question-and-answer cards, making it an easy family road trip candidate for fun. Do be cautious of their obligatory warning: "Humorless hover-parents and those who don't appreciate flatulence jokes, may not approve."

UNO Minecraft Card Game

This game plays the same as basic UNO but with Minecraft characters and a special “Creeper” rule card.Amazon

The race to get rid of all your cards - well, except for the "Uno" - takes a spin through the Minecraft universe in this version. Plus, there's an additional Creeper card that puts a new mix on strategy.
