Hi all! Kristina here, I believe this will be my last Gift guide post. I hope you enjoyed it and got some good ideas.
Today’s gift idea is a fun educational game for kids called Balance Beans. This great game is fairly simple and straightforward as far as directions go (my favorite kind). I hate it when games get unnecessarily complicated. That being said some of the combinations are still slightly complicated for kids to figure out.
Basically you get a card and on the card it tells you how to set up the game pieces that then won’t move (the red beans). The card also tells you which move-able pieces you are allowed to use to make the see-saw balance.
The cards range in difficulty from easy to super hard and all steps in between so the kiddos can start out easy and work their way up if it gets too easy for them but it also won’t be so hard that it is frustrating.
I feel this game is a great balance between fun and education. My son didn’t even realize he was learning balancing principles but he told me that if he gets the same number on each side of the middle it works. Its slightly more complicated than that but I was pleased with his insight just the same.
I also love that its a solo game, he can get it out whenever he wants and play all on his own. Great alternative to tv and video games.
All in all I think this is a great gift, what do you think? What was your favorite gift from the gift guide? Thanks for hanging out with me.
