31 Games - Hoot Owl Hoot!

Is your 3-year-old the youngest of the family, or are all the kids your child plays with close to that same age?  If so, then you know how difficult it can be to find ways for them to all be involved in the fun and games - so many choices are just too advanced for this age.

But now, you'll have a list of 31 unique games that even a 3-year-old can join in with.  A few of these ideas will be best for the preschool set, but most will work for a wide range of ages!

In this cooperative game, players work together to help all the owls fly back to their nest before the sun comes up.  

Children will have the chance to learn social development skills along with simple strategy and problem-solving tricks, but don't have to be able to read a thing. 

This game also includes two levels of play, so it can grow with your child!


Hoot Owl Hoot!

Players:  2-4

Ages:  3 +

Place:  a spot to set the board

Equipment:  this game

How to play:  The players take turns drawing cards and then choosing which of their owls to have "fly" to that space.

Drawing a sun card means everyone is one step closer to daylight.

The game is over when the sun is up (all sun cards have been played) or all the owls make it back to the nest.

Since all the players work together to try and win the game, this is perfect for little ones who don't care about being competitive, but just enjoy the fun of playing with others.
