Enter to #win a Mythical Creatures Find It Game! #giveaway

It's Game Day today, in my son's classroom!
Photo taken early this morning, on the way to school.

Today is Game Day at my son's school. That means everyone gets to bring in something fun for the class to play with during their break time (recess is what we called it when I went to school). Why so early in the year? Because it's HOT outside and the kids voted for inside recess. I've been out there in the heat of the day, and I can't same I blame 'em. Smart of the teacher to even think of the 'inside game' idea. My son broke the news to me early this morning that he needed a game (insert parents laughing here because this kind of thing always happens). Fortunately he has a new game in the house, that he just loves...the FIND IT Mythical Creatures Game, and that's what he decided to take.



Everyone who sees this game (we have another version) asks what it is, and then wants to try and find some items on their own. It doesn't matter who they are, or how old they are, this game is an instant hands-on conversation piece! I think it would be fun to have one on your desk at work too (in addition to the kids having one at home).


There are various ways to play, or you can make up your own. We do all of the above. ;) The set comes with a small deck of player cards, a list of items and a cannister (with the items listed on the non-removeable lid).


You can see in the photo above that when you shake up the cannister a bit, or roll it around, the pieces inside start to become revealed. The object of the game is to basically find the items listed, but how you do so will be up to you. 

The game is also a great conversation starter and a fun way to introduce or elaborate upon teaching with your kids. For example...have them locate the shpinx (the character with the head of a human and the body of the lion), and then go into a history of the culture it came from, or offer up some fun facts on it and other mythological items. 

There are some items everyone will know (like the mermaid) that you can still find and then share fun facts about that they might not have known Then there will be items to find that may be completely new to the players. That's where an extra dose of teaching/learning can come into play. Either way, it's a fun way to incorporate teaching at home, or in the classroom.


They have quite a few versions of this game (Eww, GrossPiratesOriginal and more). Take a look around the website and see what you think. Everyone really seems so drawn to these games. They're like slinky's were back in the day: impossible to resist. :)

Hint: Keep these in mind for the upcoming holidays too because they'd make excellent gift ideas.

It looks like the type of game that will keep the kids busy for hours! Not to mention that it's fun as well! I'm considering getting this for my boys!

Christie C said...

My kids LOVE these kind of sensory games. This would be a great one for their collection

~ Noelle said...

Yeah, they have indoor recess here some. A LOT of it depends on the temps. If it is above or below a certain set of numbers, the county requires them NOT to go outside. (*From what I have been told)

This would be fun and you don't have to worry about pieces getting lost. Broxton's k-3 teacher made these one year and gave them to the class as end of the year gifts. I thought it was an awesome gift!

Kita Bryant said...

My sister plays a game similar to this with her daughter. She uses a baby bottle and put a ton of little toys in rice inside it and gave her a list. Pretty neat!

Christy Maurer said...

This looks like so much fun! I think I'd like the Discover America one too.

Jeanna Massman said...

I learned over 4 million have been sold. My grandson would love it!

Theresa Mahoney said...

The girls always got a kick out of finding games like this one. It sure would have made car trips a lot easier if we had this when they were smaller!
