If you’ll be doing some packing before you hit the road this summer, chances are you don’t want the kids to help too much, lest you end up with six pairs of socks and no pants in their suitcases. So try channeling their I can help! persistence into a game in which you have to pack away your clothes before they spill all over the place.
And it really doesn’t matter if they pack six pairs of socks into a single suitcase either.
Elephant’s Trunk is an easy-to-learn game for toddlers and their parents who will be relieved to know that each round of play zips along at a steady pace as players race to be the first to put all their clothing tokens into one of four suitcases. Let’s face it: we’ve all been burned by a never-ending game of Chutes and Ladders enough to appreciate a game that doesn’t take an hour to complete.
