I do not play this way! — these words, accompanied by resentment and tears, can often be heard from children. Parents are worried, and a peaceful family evening threatens to develop into a drama.
To begin with, let’s reassure moms and dads: if your child reacts sharply to defeat, this is completely normal, there is no need to shame him for this, let alone scold him. First, he still does not know how to cope with emotions. And secondly, children up to a certain age feel “omnipotent”: they are used to love and care, to the fact that everything in life is arranged the way they need. And so the bitterness of defeat for a child is unbearable. How to deal with it? Play boardgames!
First of all, in those games where all participants play on the same team. Such board games are often also called cooperative. Is it possible to lose them? Of course yes. But it is much easier to lose all together, and besides, older participants will show the correct behavior model with their attitude towards defeat.
What are these magical games? One of the best is “Spider Web”. In it, players will turn into a team of rescuers and help tiny insects together.
So imagine! On a green meadow, a hardworking spider wove a beautiful cobweb. That’s just the little insects, cheerfully playing nearby, got entangled in it … It doesn’t matter! With the help of the players, all the captives will jump onto the grass and continue their game.
- What distinguishes “Spider Web” from other board games for the little ones?
- A cooperative game in which there is no stress and resentment.
- The first game that teaches how to use scissors (safe kids scissors included).
- Trains the account, knowledge of the right-left, waiting for their turn.
- The game unfolds into a large and bright 3D forest clearing + insect figures.
- 50 cobwebs included = about 70 hours of playing time
- Can be played alone or with five
How is the game going?
A paper cobweb is stretched over the support flowers, 10 insects and one red spider are placed on it. Players take turns making cuts with scissors, trying to free the bugs and watching the tension of the web. After all, the spider itself should always remain in its house. As soon as all insects are free, the team of players has won! But if the spider fell, then you have to try again! The game has 3 difficulty levels: for kids and for older kids! They do not change the essence of the game, but they add new tasks to the game.
Play good games!
