Educational Insights consistently knocks it out of the park with their games. Like so many of their games, The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game not only has great artwork, but also works on fine motor skills. Yay! OT's love tongs for developing fine motor skills and strengthening the muscles of little hands and guess what? This game includes a squirrel that is actually tongs!! The concept of this game is similar to Hi Ho Cherry-O, but the players use the squirrel tongs to pick up the little acorns and place on their logs. Be the first to fill your log with acorns and you win!
Best for ages: 3-5 years
- fine motor
- color identification
- turn taking
- cooperative play
