Another game loved by my daughters is Grabolo. I cannot say that playing with it goes without a fight, but it is a game where speed, concentration and memory has to be used, so a young four-year-old has some disadvantages.
And if she can’t take it lightly, it can cause troubles.
And if it can, it will. Trust me, I know.
How to play
This is a kind of easy game to play, there are some circles with different animals on it in different coloured backgrounds. Players have two dices, one for the colours and one for the animals.
When someone throws the dice, the fastest player has to find the circle on the floor/table/etc. that matches the one indicated by the dices. And here are the problems when you have an older girl who wants to win, who wants to beat the younger one, and a younger one, who cannot really loose… 🙂
This game hardly ever ends with a great laugh – but sooner or later they will learn how to play together without fighting and simply enjoy the game itself. These things happen from time to time but very rarely. Very-very rarely.
But we work on it, all of us.
