Rea got a few games for her birthday and she is really excited to play them, however she is struggling with the whole following the rules and taking turns thing… I am excited to teach her though because (hello!) that means game nights are in my future!
This activity is a super simple way to work on numbers, following directions, and taking turns.

Teacher Tip

I’m not a big proponent of letting your Lil’ win as I don’t think it teaches realistic expectations. Plus, enforcing the rules allows your Lil’ to practice following directions and being a good sport/gracious loser. That being said, this game requires zero skill and is pure luck so they are bound to win eventually!
