Avalanche Fruit Stand!

This post contains Amazon Affiliate links for your connivence.
I just love when I get home from work and I see an Amazon.com box sitting on my porch! I was super excited because I knew what was inside. Last week while working with one of my kiddos at his home, he introduced me to this awesome game called... Avalanche Fruit Stand
To play, you set up all the fruit on the fruit stand. Each player takes a turn spinning the spinner. You choose a piece of fruit from the stand based on what color or number the spinner lands on. You also have to be strategic about where you pick your piece of fruit from (kinda like in Jenga!)
My kiddos had a blast playing this game this week and every single one made me promise to bring it back next time. I love games that are educational and motivating (winning!)
This game allowed me to address the following goals (I'm sure there are more...)
Following directions
Vocabulary
Colors
Number Concepts
Counting
Turn Taking
Prepositions
Articulation (practice a target before a turn)
Fine Motor Skills

I just loved this game and had to share. 
Special thanks to Mason for introducing me to Avalanche Fruit Stand!
