Preschoolers have an early bed time, which is good because you need that “mommy time” at the end of the day to unwind.
The problem is that preschoolers having seemingly boundless energy during the daylight hours. How do you channel The Force and keep them from turning your house upside down?
Hasbro has the right idea with their Elefun and Friends collection of games, designed for active play and lots of laughs!
Games in the Elefun and Friends series include Hungry Hungry Hippos, Gator Golf, and two new games that Hasbro sent us to try out: Giraffalaff Limbo and Hasbro Scatterpillar Scramble!
Giraffalaff Limbo is a kid-friendly limbo game in which players spin a spinner to find out which of the 6 ways (classic limbo, crabwalk, crawl, giraffe walk, forward, and backward) you have to limbo.
If you bump into Giraffalaff, he starts laughing! The player who goes the lowest is the winner!
Giraffalaff Limbo is contained enough to be played indoors, but it can really be a workout!
Scatterpillar Scramble focuses on fine motor skills, as players hurry to place all of their 8 marbles in Scatterpillar’s hands as he wiggles about! It is actually quite challenging!
Scatterpillar Scramble and Giraffalaff Limbo are great games to pull out when you are trying to resist the urge to turn on the television.
