Playing Time: 10 Minutes
HEAD OUT TO THE ORCHARD
Board games provide hours of entertainment, but little hands require larger play pieces that are easy to handle. Playing the First Orchard game gives your toddler the chance to enjoy the original Orchard game, but in a way that’s meant to be enjoyed by small hands and curious minds. HABA USA offers My Very First Games for children so that they can have fun with a kid-friendly version of the timeless game. Your child can learn to play with the family or with friends.
The sturdy fruit basket provides another game on its own! The solid wooden fruit can be used for the game (with game boards and die) and also as pretend play food for your play kitchen.
- Game Idea: Working as a team, the children try to pick the fruits from the trees before the raven reaches the end of the path.
- If the players succeed in harvesting all the fruit before the raven reaches the orchard, they win together! If the raven gets there first, they lose together against the quick, ravenous raven.
- This cooperative Orchard game is designed to foster social skills and understanding of game rules, develop color recognition skills, and teach counting by ones.
