Are you ready for some wacky gaming action? The Mouse Trap Game, a longtime family favorite, is always good for zany action and lots of laughs. Scurry around the board collecting cheese and stealing cheese from other players… but watch out for the trap! While kids are engaged in playing the game, they also practice valuable skills in construction, cause and effect, and decision making. And they have a lot of fun! The Mouse Trap game include a gameboard, 4 mouse pawns, a marble, 24 Mouse Trap contraption parts, a rubber band, 24 cardboard cheese wedges, a die, and instructions. 2 to 4 players. Ages 6 and up.
As kids interact with the trap (a working, multipart machine), they practice construction skills. They work on understanding cause and effect as they observe that each action causes a reaction. And players practice decision making when they analyze the situation and determine the next best step. But most importantly, kids have so much fun playing this wacky game!
