Everyone (adults included) loves games that require finding things, right? That's why hide and seek, scavenger hunts, and I spy are classics! At Find It Games, they have mastered the art of creating games that not only help kids find hidden objects, but that help them to find creativity and insight. Love that! You know who else loves Find It Games? The National Parenting Center has given two Find It Games their 2011 Spring Seal of Approval!
The first award winner is Oh, Really! It is made for kids ages 10 and up. Oh Really! is a really fun and FUNNY game in which players get to know each other a little better. Each player is asked to rank seemingly trivial items according to what they feel is most important. How about these for random, "mirrors", "spoons", "prayer", "fame", "responsibility", "food", "marriage", etc. Then just when you think you have someone figured out, they rank "fame" ahead of "responsibility", making you exclaim "Oh, Really!" It's really cute and perfect for tweens and teens!
The second game that caught the National Parenting Centers' eye is VeggieTales Find It. This game is for kids ages 4 and up and is a MUST-HAVE for travel--road trips, flights, etc. Basically, it is a highly durable tube filled with colorful pellets. Amid all of the pellets, there are little objects from VeggieTales to be found. Kids shake, turn, and flip the game to find the objects. It is such a great way to keep kids entertained and busy in the car! It's mess-free and FUN!
The top of the container lists all of the items to be found and it also comes with a little pad that you can use to check off the items as you find them.
