Spot It! ~ This is a really quick pick up game. It can easily travel and fit right into your purse. Each round only takes a few minutes to play. It also helps improve vision skills, which is one of the things we are focusing on this year for Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks. Tom Sawyer is way too good at this game. He wins almost all of the cards, so sometimes we have to play without him to give others a chance.
Q-bitz ~ This game works on visual dexterity. We picked it to help our girls with vision therapy. It is a fun and challenging game (at least for everyone but Tom Sawyer). He solves each puzzle in less than 60 seconds! I really need to look up careers for people who are exceptional at visual games. This kid is amazing. We all love this game, and I am sure it is going to become a new regular around here.
PicWits! ~ Do you love the game, Apples to Apples? Well, this game is a cousin to it but with pictures instead of phrases. We thought we would love it and indeed we do. It is just as much fun as Apples to Apples and the pictures are so unique. This is becoming a quick family favorite around here.
Staxis ~ This is a finger biting game. It is a balancing game where you are trying to get rid of your sticks. However, if you knock any sticks off, you get the sticks. This game takes some serious eye hand coordination. We are glad to have this game, but I suspect it won't be pulled out as often as others. It makes some of us feel stressed out and we have enough of that already!
Happy New Year!
