Since my son and his family moved more than one-thousand miles from me my visits only happen a few times a year. As time is precious I try to make sure that every moment is well spent.
My grandchildren, Stefania, who is almost six and her three-year-old brother Amante always have a list of activities that we MUST do every day. At the top of the list is board games.
Since the children are so young this doesn’t leave as many gaming options as it does for their older cousins. The youngsters do, however, have a few games they absolutely adore!
At the top of the board game list is Sofia the First Magical Tea Time Game. The object of the game is to be the player who ends up with the most delicious treats on their plate.
The game is designed for up to four player aged three years and older. Gameplay is accomplished through color matching skills. Beginning with the youngest player, and moving clockwise, each player chooses a treat. On the opposite side of the treat is one of three colors, a teacup, a teapot, or simple task card. If a color is selected then the treat is placed upon the treat list with the same color. Winning the task card depends on which player first accomplishes the task of a curtsy, or elbows off the table. Teacup cards can be lucky or not as the player blows the teacup causing one of the three colors to appear. Then the player wins all of the treats on the same-color plate. If there are no treats, oh-oh no treats! The teacup cards will have the player choosing an opponents tea cup to blow by squeezing the magic teapot. When all the treats are selected it is game over and time for everyone to count their treats.
I can’t even begin to count the number of times we have played this game since I gifted the game to my granddaughter for Christmas in 2013. It is a game that the kids never tire of!
