Recently we received the game Pancake Pile-Up Relay Game to review. This has been such a fun snow day game and any one who lives in Minnesota knows we have had plenty of snow or cold days that school has been cancelled. What I love is that it is a movement game and we have really needed that with being cooped up inside so much this winter. But it's just not movement, it is also identification and pattern recognition as well as fine and gross motor skills work. And if you do it as a relay it works on teamwork and any way you play it there is the opportunity to work on good sportsmanship skills.
I have played this game with my daughter the most. She couldn't wait to open it up and was begging and begging the couple days we had it sitting on the table unopened. Then 8" of snow happened with blizzard conditions. We don't have many movement board games, so this was a welcome change. I have played this with my son too, but he hasn't liked playing against his older, competitive sister. I do hope to play it as a family relay soon.
And if you look at the picture from the company of them playing outdoors, well, let;s just say I have fond ideas of making an obstacle course relay using this game involving hula hoops, a kiddie pool, plastic cones and sidewalk chalk. Wanna come over to play this summer?
