I really enjoy seeing my boys grow up, specially when they are learning along. The boys still love to play with their cars and pretend they crash. They even pretend they go to the store to get me some cookies and milkshakes! Pretty fun stuff. Lately they’ve started getting interested into board games which I am loving since this means that mommy can play too!!
Recently I found about Think Fun who has a great selection of Junior Games (perfect for toddlers and preschoolers). Just a few weeks back Think Fun sent the boys their Snack Attack game and they’ve been playing with it ever since!
Snack Attack is a fun and fast-paced game perfect for kids 4+. The ideal is to Spin, Match and Stack! Simple as that!! In a way it is a fast-paced memory game that includes tower building and hand-eye coordination skills! Hey, no one wants their tower to tumble down, right?!
Each player must choose a card, sort of like the ones you use to play bingo. There are two kinds to choose from blue (easy) which includes a wild spot in the middle for you to choose as any other snack. The red card is a bit harder since you only have 4 spots.
The game starts by spinning the wheel which then places the tokens on the green board. The ideal is to have each kid yell out for the tokens they want to use. This is where it could be fun since maybe 2 or more kids will want to use the same token so, first come first serve! And then you will have to stack your snacks as high as you can!
Both the boys have tried to play together but since A is 3 and J is almost 2, well they create their own rules and ignore mommy and her crazy game rules, phft! Well, A makes a spin-off version which is closer to the actual game. But the good thing is that they have fun and enjoy their board game!
J. loves to spin the tokens over and over again until they are out of the tube and into his hands, and the floor as well. That is all he does. No stacking or finding or anything like that. He is all about the spinning. Keeps him entertained!
A’s version of the game is closer to the real game. After the spin of the tokens he grabs as many snacks as he can and tries to build the tallest tower!! He uses the game boards where you are supposed to stack the tokens that look alike but doesn’t really care for the pictures on each slot. He is a stubborn one so he does as he pleases.
But they both love Snack Attack. They ave tons of fun and I’ve been invited to play a round or two! Let me tell you, it is entertaining!
