Does anyone else become bored at the thought of playing Duck, Duck, Goose? I’ll sit down with excellent intentions of a fun half-hour of the game only to find my interest is gone at about 1 turn per person. At that point I try to point out who hasn’t had a turn so that I can stay under the radar, and in my seat. Don’t get me wrong! I love games, and I love playing with my kids. I’ve just played this one too many times. So I thought, why not change it up a bit? The world is filled with animals besides ducks and geese, and maybe we can learn something while we are at it.
My kids love bugs, and they always want to know who eats who. So I’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite bugs and their hunters for our Duck, Duck Goose games. You call out the first animal until you are ready to be chased and then you call out the predator. It is different, you learn something while you play and it is fun. I love it!
