This makes a great first board game for young kids because it doesn’t require a lot of strategy, it’s quick to play, and the game rules are easy to understand. Plus, the artwork is adorable! But here’s my favorite aspect of this game: Kids can easily play this independently while you sneak a catnap on the couch.
If you have more than one child or your child likes to play board games with friends, you’ll likely want to play this with the kids the first couple of times to help them learn the rules, but after that you can peace out.
From the Manufacturer
Your forest friends are hungry, and they need your help! Spin the spinner, squeeze the matching colored acorn with your Squirrel Squeezer, and place it into your log. Be the first to fill your log with delicious acorns and you win! You could also spin “pick an acorn,” “steal an acorn,” or “lose an acorn,” so be strategic, little squirrel!
This game reinforces color learning; develops strategic thinking, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and pre-handwriting skills while using the squeezer; encourages social skills and turn-taking; and practices memory and attention skills. Great first board game for a child with easy setup and cleanup!
