Peaceable Kingdom Panda’s Picnic
(Peaceable Kingdom $17.95)
Who doesn't love a picnic? Here's a perfect picnic basket loaded with plates, a cloth to spread on the ground, and an assortment of foods in three different shapes and colors. Each player gets a plate and takes turns digging into the basket to find one of the three shapes to fill his dish. OR turn the plates over and players take turns pulling out a food of three different colors. There's no race to be first—this is a cooperative game that ends when everyone has a full plate. Designed for the youngest players, this is more about taking turns, identifying and matching shapes and colors. Marked for two and up, we think this is a better choice for threes and up. The picnic basket will also be fun for pretend play and lots of knowing and naming that will reinforce vocabulary.
