 With five kids bickering is bound to happen. I looks for cooperative activities for my kids to do together. It gives them an opportunity to work as a team. That is why our family loves  Stack Up!

How to Play:

Spin The Spinner and get Stacking! Can you stack 12 blocks before the Stack Smasher get to the tower and topples it? Stack Up! has three levels of game play so the game grows with children and kids of different ages can play together. Start by spinning the spinner. If it lands on a color, kids playing at Level 1 use their hands to place that color block on the board. Kids playing at Level 2 use the wood ends of the Stack Sticks to stack the block, and Level 3 players use the foam ends. If the spinner lands on the Stack Smasher, move him forward 1 space at all levels of play. If the spinner lands on a Challenge, kids playing at Level 1 make a stack with any two blocks and use their hands to place them on the board. In Levels 2 and 3, you get to play with a cooperative, 2-player challenge! Draw a Challenge Card and work with the player on your left. Using either the wood or foam ends of the Stack Sticks, work together to perform the challenge while moving a block onto the stack. Stack all 12 blocks before the Stack Smasher makes his way around the board and you all win!

This game is a huge hit in our home! It was so much fun to watch my kids work together when they play this game. They are one team needing to work together to beat  Stack Smasher. Knowing this is the goal of the game they are encouraged to help each other so they can win! Having multiple aged children I like how this game can be played 3 different ways.  Levels that are a bit more difficult for older children making it more challenging. This game not only teaches cooperative but it teaches hand and eye coordination by stacking the blocks plus if you draw a challenge card you may have to high-five while trying to add the block to the stack all at the same time! Then for the littler ones it’s great for following directions and learning colors too!
