  • Playing time: About 15 minutes

How to Play
Jump right into this lively game that’s sure to make a splash! Roll the die and then drop the wooden pebble
 into the pond. Did any colorful shapes splash out? If so, match them up to your playing board.
Be the first to fill up your board and then dry off with a win!

Imagine walking through the forest on a hot summer’s day and stumbling upon a secret pond that shimmers with 
every color of the rainbow. Such is the inspiration for this delightful game that aims to pique your sense of wonder. 
As you play, you’ll hone such essential skills as counting, color identification as well as hand/eye coordination. 
You’ll even learn some elementary physics, as you see that even the tiniest pebble can make a big splash. 
Jump right in – the water is just right and the fun awaits you!
enhances the following skills
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Color Identification
  • Matching
My kids loved this game and so did I .  The game is simple enough that they can play it together without me having to watch and make sure my youngest is playing right.  I love this fact the most since there is a gap of 6 years from oldest to youngest in age.  I do have to say though that when my kids played it took them longer than 15 mins for their first game.  Depending on how the pieces bounce you could be playing longer.  The great thing is though that they didn't care and loved playing it.  This game is great for those rainy days with nothing to do or for the kids to play while mom gets some cleaning done or relaxing with a good book (Like that really happens with 3 kids... A girl can dream!)  

You can purchase the game online at Gamewright's website for $15.99.  Also you can go here for a list of retailers to purchase it from along with other Gamewright games.  So hurry up and go purchase Splish Splash just in time for the holidays.  I am sure your kids will love it just like my kids did.
