Stone Soup Cooperative Board Game

Imagine a board game for preschoolers with no more tears! This game challenges kids to work together to achieve their goals, rather than compete for victory. Made entirely from recycled cardboard, this memory match game sees kids sharing ideas in order to add more “ingredients” to a bubbling cauldron of soup and to avoid the sneaky “fire out” cards. By the time they’ve finished, they’ll have learned that when you work together, the smell of success (and soup) can be just as sweet! (Peaceable Kingdom, $14.95)
