Noodleboro games from Hasbro!

We care deeply about raising great kids. As Moms, we find ourselves constantly reminded about how much social skills matter: from helping children build friendships to succeeding in the classroom or on sports teams to ultimately succeeding as an adult. From insisting on "please" and "thank you" at the dinner table to intervening in a fight over sharing toys, we Moms spend a tremendous amount of time teaching these social skills. Moreover, with our busy schedules, we often end up enforcing skills such as sharing, listening, collaborating, cooperating, and good manners in high stress situations, reacting to our child's failure to exercise these skills. A recent Mom Central survey of 950 Moms nationally found that 98% of us Moms consider social skills very important to our children's development while 85% of us experience frustration and tension when teaching these vital skills. Additionally, the survey revealed that 99% of us want more creative, innovative, and fun ways to teach our children social skills. Hasbro took our struggle to heart. As the maker of such family classics as Candy Land, Battleship, Scrabble and Clue, Hasbro wanted to provide playful and effective learning games to help us raise kids who listen well, cooperate with others, share with friends, get along in groups, and act respectfully to teachers and adults. After two years of research and creativity, Noodleboro has arrived. Just released, the three Noodleboro board games each come with an accompanying CD for car rides or playtime and books for story time to enhance the valuable lessons:
Hasbro has created a new line of games, Noodleboro, to help preschoolers practice their social and interpersonal skills while having fun.
We were sent the NOODLEBORO – Learning About Manners Picnic Basket Game!! The purpose of this game is to help preschoolers learn about social skills! It makes learning these skills a little bit easier and a lot more fun!NOODLEBORO games let you nurture kids’ social skills naturally through multi-sensory play that leaves everyone laughing!Each NOODLEBORO game comes with a storybook and an audio CD so kids can see, hear, play and then live each NOODLEBORO life lesson.It’s hard to have a perfect picnic party when ants keep trying to steal your food! Just say “please” and “thank you” to send those pesky ants packing and collect all the items that will make the picnic a success.

Other Games in this series include:
We struggle to get our kids to listen and pay attention, and in the Pizza Palace Game, they must do both while taking our pizza orders. Although they might normally tune us out (when we only want mushrooms on one slice), listening becomes a fun challenge.
The Fun Park Game mirrors every family outing you have ever taken - your child must cooperate and work with you to make decisions about what to do next. Sharing and teamwork becomes creative and exciting as well as applicable to your family's every day life.

I look forward to purchasing the other two editions to the Noodleboro Collection !!
