How to Play:
To start, players open the board and lay out the tiles in any random way, leaving the center space open. Each player chooses a cookie jar marker and places it in the center of the board. Spin the spinner, mover your marker and collect a tile. Get a milk carton, go again! Collect and replace tiles until one player wins! For a more challenging game, set up the board the same way, only each player chooses 1 or 2 types of cookies to collect. It's a more complex version for kids 6+ who are ready for a bit of a challenge and don't mind if their cookie crumbles!
Why families love this game:
This game makes your mouth water! It's easy to learn and simple to play. There is little reading required so it's perfect for the youngest gamers yet it has a built-in challenge version so the game ages with the children. This game teaches quick color recognition, helps children learn to count and see directional moves of play which helps develop their spatial and visual reasoning. Not to mention, the game pieces are hardy and feel good in your hand! Milk & Cookies makes a great gift!
I played the game with my 4 year old. He is supposed to be in Head Start right now, but they are still trying to get the program going. This game is perfect for me to help him learn while he is waiting to start school. It took him a few turns to get the hang of it. But, once he got it, there was no stopping him! He beat me 9 -16! I was very amazed, and very proud!
He told me that he wants to play again and win again! He also wants to play with his older brother and teach him how to play! Oh, they grow up so fast! This game is a great learning game and I would recommend it!
