Would you like a fun game for your young child (ages 4 and up) that teaches matching skills, counting skills, and taking turn skills?!
I have one to giveaway today from Educational Insights!
Diggity Dogs ™ Game is a "Go Fish" style game with a cute puppy theme. Bo adores puppies so he had fun matching three things a puppy needs with each puppy so he could "adopt" them.
This is a really good game to teach Bo to take turns - he wanted all the puppies and didn't want to take turns. He played with Mali and Elli who were patient to help him learn.
I think they enjoyed playing, too.
Since it is like playing "Go Fish," they took turns asking for specific things they needed to adopt a puppy. If they did not have the item, they drew from the pile of cards. After matching three items to the puppy, they got to "adopt" it.
Bo enjoyed playing by himself more - he really loves the dogs! He matched the three correct items to each dog.
It is an easy and fun game to play, and is educational too. I think it will be a perfect tie in to our unit study on dogs. I plan to use this game when we read Angus Lost and learn about taking care of dogs. We will talk about all the pictured items and how they can be used to care for a dog.
- 7 sturdy die-cut dogs with plastic stands
- 28 playing cards
While it is geared towards ages 4 and up, Bo, who is 3, really enjoyed "playing" by matching the cards to the correct puppies. I think if he didn't like the puppies so much, he might have been willing to take turns better, but I love that he wants to play and that this game can be used several ways while he learns to take turns (such as matching and counting).
Mali and Elli, who are 9 and 7, enjoyed playing this game, too, but by themselves - they didn't like playing with Bo! I had to distract him so they could play. :)
