After reading Baby Bird by Joyce Dunbar, I was inspired to make this fun little game to go along with. Then I saw the cute little blue bird graphic and I just KNEW I had to use it for the game! Doesn’t it kind of look like Baby Bird from the book!?!?! Check out the Flap, Flap & Fly game board!
The book, Baby Bird, is about a determined little birdie who wants to learn to fly. Although he first climbed out of his nest and flop..flop..and fell, Baby Bird doesn’t let anything stop him from learning to flap..flap..and fly! (Hence the name of the game!)
Directions: Use the game board to help Baby Bird flap, flap, and fly out of his nest by moving along until he reaches the end, where he has learned to fly! To play the game, you will need the Education Cubes insert cards designed specifically for this game board. You can access the Flap, Flap, & Fly insert cards by joining the Education Cubes Members Only Site.
Helpful Hint: We like to use our game board on a magnetic cookie sheet. (I found some suitable ones at the Dollar Tree.) For the marker, we use one of our puff ball magnets. This helps to make sure that the boys don’t loose their place on the game board amidst all of the fun and crazy stunts they use to roll their Education Cubes! They ALWAYS have so much fun when they use their Education Cubes!
