My three young children love to play board games and can be quite competitive with one another. That is why I was so thrilled to discover a board game by Peaceable Kingdom® that actually promotes cooperative play!
The 2011 Creative Child “Game of the Year” award winner, Count Your Chickens! is so unique and special because it is a cooperative game.
Instead of competing against one another and the inevitable frustrations that come about as a result, my 4, 5 and 6 year old children must team up against the common obstacles in the game. The goal of the game is to work together and help the Mother Hen bring all of her chicks back to the chicken coop as they spin and move around the game board. When all the chicks are collected then everyone playing has the joy and experience of winning as a team!
As a home educating mom I am always searching for toys and games that sneak in additional educational opportunities. Count Your Chickens! is perfect because it promotes valuable learning skills such as counting, following directions, taking turns and of course cooperative play.
My children love playing this game together and it is so nice to hear them laughing happily instead of fighting or arguing. I also like the quick game play of approximately 15-20 minutes which holds my youngest child’s attention. This game is so popular with my little ones that they frequently want to play more than one game at a time.
I am an eco-conscious mom too so I appreciate that Count Your Chickens! is environmentally friendly by using only soy-based inks on FSC paper and corn-based plastic. The game pieces, game board and spinner are colorful, engaging and durable and it has stood up to frequent play with my children. You are invited to visit the Peaceable Kingdom website to browse the entire collection of toys and games and to purchase Count Your Chickens for only $14.99!
