Learning Colors and Numbers With UNO

I taught my children the colors just by playing UNO with them. Every time I laid down a card I would say the color name. They learned the colors quickly and soon were saying them too. This is also a good game to teach numbers with (though if you say the numbers every time, it's a little confusing when someone gets "UNO".).  You can also incorporate many phrases, like the ones I list below.  Your children will be pick these up in no time if you use them while you play (though you may have to explain what they mean at first. .
