count your chickens co-operative game
We love cooperative games by Peaceable Kingdom. With sweet and fun illustrations and easy to understand rules, these are perfect games for younger kiddos – ages 3 and up.
In Count Your Chickens, all players are helping the baby chicks get inside the coop before Mama Chicken gets home. Spin the spinner and move Mama Chicken to the matching space. Count together how many spaces she moved. If she moves 3, gather 3 chicks to tuck safely into the coop. If she moves 2 spaces, collect 2 chicks for the coop. Collect all the baby chicks before Mama reaches home and everyone wins!
Why cooperative games? Competition has its place, but so does working together to achieve a group goal. These games encourage kids to work together and have fun by working as a team rather than against one another.
