Fruit Punch is a wonderful counting and quantity recognition game. The goal is to collect all the cards by being the first to bop the banana each time you spot exactly 5 of one type of fruit on the table.
Kids love the squeaky rubber banana included with this game! They want to be the first to spot 5 just so they can be the one to bop the banana and make it squeak!
Players take turns flipping the top card from their deck and placing it on the face-up pile of cards in front of them. You keep going clockwise around the table, each flipping one card until there are exactly 5 of one type of fruit showing. In this example, there are 5 strawberries on the table. The first person to bop the banana gets all the face-up cards and puts them face-down on the bottom of their draw pile.
If you bop the banana when there is not exactly 5 of one fruit showing, you add one card from your draw pile to each other person's face-up pile and play continues. The person who collects all the cards wins. I can't think of a more enjoyable way to work on counting and improve the speed at which you can recognize certain numbers of diffeent objects. Amigo Games did a great job with this one! The kids absolutely loved it! You can purchase Fruit Punch here.
