Description of the tool:
There are 40 game boxes on the board:
8 boxes with fruits, 8 boxes with animals, 8 boxes with colours, 8 boxes with means of transport, 7 special boxes and the winner’s box.
Each child has his own piece, a cork previously painted, and throw the dice. The game begins with the child that gets the highest score. The game proceeds clockwise.
When the player gets into a fruit box he will name the drawn fruit; when the player gets into the animal box, he will name the drawn animal but also mimic his sound; when the player gets into a colour box he will name the colour but will also find an object with that colour in the surrounding space; when the player gets into the means of transport box he will name the transport. When the player arrives in one special box he must follow the instructions: ‘skip a turn’; ‘forward 1 box’; ‘forward 3 boxes’; ‘forward 5 boxes’; ‘turn back 3 boxes’; ‘turn back 5 boxes’.
The winner is whoever reaches to box 40 first
