I hope that you had a safe and delightful time ringing in the New Year.
And that you didn’t eat so many sweets over the holidays that you’re in a sugar coma. (Boy, I don’t ask much do I?)
Our grandson got a cute, cute, cute game for Christmas and I want to tell you all about it, Dear Readers. It’s called the Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game.
It’s really simple to play. (What else do you expect for children around the age of 4 years old, eh? )
The object is to be the first person to get one of every color of the acorns in your ‘log.’ (You are storing the acorns up for your hungry squirrel to eat!)
Each player gets a game piece that looks like part of a tree log. Players take turn flipping the spinner and doing what the spinner lands on: pick an acorn, lose an acorn, steal an acorn.
This game is for children ages 3 and up. Kids learn all sorts of things from this game: matching and sorting skills, strategic thinking, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills. All that while having fun!
My favorite thing about this game is the squirrel squeezers. (Isn’t that just fun to say? Squirrel squeezers!) They are squirrel-shaped tweezers that you use to pick up the acorns and put them in (or take them out) of your game piece.
I love the shape of the box — tree-shaped. This adds to the ‘kid’ appeal of the game. It also adds to the grandma appeal.
This would make a good addition to the game collection that you have at your house. Your grandchildren would love playing it with you!
