My preschooler old loves mermaids, so we played this Mermaids & Pirates game about 6 times in 4 days!
It prints off easily on 2 sheets of paper and takes two players about 10 minutes play…the perfect length for short attention spans!
Plus, it has mermaids and pirates! My 4-year old’s favorite things in the world are mermaids, unicorns, rainbows, princesses, and Spiderman, so she called her mermaid “The Princess” and the game suddenly included two of her all-time favorite things!
I love board games like this because they give kids a chance to practice counting, subitizing, a one-to-one correspondence, taking turns, and coping with winning and losing. Those are a lot of early reading, early math, and important life skills all wrapped up in a short game that you might end up playing twice in one morning!
I hope you love the game! If you want to share a copy with your friends, please send them to **this web page.** (Please do NOT send them directly to the file.)
