Count Your Chickens

  • 1699

How to Play: The baby chicks have flown the coop! All players work together to help Mother Hen collect her chicks and bring them back to the coop. To start, players place the 40 baby chicks all around the board. Mother Hen is on start. The object of the game is to get all 40 baby chicks back inside the coop before Mother Hen gets to the last space on the board. Players spin and move Mother Hen, counting the number of spaces she travels. For each space travelled, players collect that number of baby chick markers and place them in the coop. But watch out for the fox! If the spinner lands on the fox a baby chick is removed from the coop. Players take turns, but work together – players count aloud together, collect the number chicks together and, if they collect them all, players win together!

Why families love this item: Kids often feel anxiety playing competitive games. With cooperative games, the stress of losing or not being good enough goes away because players are playing as a team against a common obstacle and not against each other. Count Your Chickens!™ eliminates stress, empowers a young learner, and teaches kids that playing together can be fun! Kids practice counting and cooperation. Help your kids learn at an early age how easy it is to cooperate!
