When we were out visiting for Christmas, my mom bought the kids this great game, Elefun, to play while we were visiting. We played it a few times, but Joshua was not really into it.
Recently, Joshua was at a friend's house and they have this game. His friend loves to play and got Joshua very excited about it. Now he wants to play all the time, over and over again. I'm so glad Grandma sent the game home with us.
In this game, the elephant blows 30 feathery, vinyl butterflies from its 4-foot trunk into the air. Kids use mesh nets (four included) to capture the butterflies.
Neither of the kids is very skilled at catching the butterflies, but they get excited just the same.
Abigail's favorite part of the game is picking up all the butterflies and putting them back in the elephant. Joshua is pointing inside the elephant, instructing Abigail where to put the butterflies she found.
Abigail loves to hold the net and pick up butterflies from the ground.
Joshua strategically places his net near the trunk and holds it there the entire time. Normally he picks the perfect spot where several butterflies fall into his net without him having to chase them.
Great game for kids! And, if you can convince them to actually chase the butterflied, they can get some physical activity, too! Joshua could play this 50 times in a row without getting bored, which is wonderful on a rainy day!
