If your child dreams of living on a farm, give them the full farm experience with this Count Your Chickens game.
This cooperative game makes it easy for kids to learn and follow the rules. Players work together to capture the escaped chicks along the route and return them to the mother hen. Use the included spinner printed with various farm inhabitants.
Players take turns spinning the arrow, then count the number of spaces they travel. Collect the same number of chicks as spaces moved, and try and get all 40 little balls of fluff back to the coop before reaching the end of the track. But watch out! The fox lurks on the spinner, too. Land on this rascal and return one chick to the board.
With the directions printed directly on the box lid, it means you don’t have to worry about losing the instructions. This game also promotes cooperation among players, and makes it easy for young kids to succeed. It requires zero literacy skills and builds counting skills in both the movement of pieces along the track and rounding up little chick tokens. Better yet, the entire game comes printed on recycled materials, from the cardboard to the plastic pieces, so you can feel good about getting or giving this board game for young kids.
