Word Chase

Goodbye, Monopoly. See you later, Candyland. Introducing Word Chase, a game alternative that's good for the earth and your child's grey matter. In this literacy scavenger hunt of sorts, kids lap the board looking for words. In the process, they practice the top 25 building blocks of the English language. Normally, bright colors mean bad news for Mother Earth. But this super colorful board is made with soy-based ink, which is much easier on the environment when the presses are cleaned. Plus, everything in the box is made of 100 percent recycled paper. (Beyond Learning, $19.95).
