My Very First Games: Forest Friends
Mia Mouse and her friends play hide and seek in the forest. Look through the peep holes in the forest and help Mia Mouse search! Wasn't there just a rustle behind the tree? And there are footprints in this puddle. Who could they belong to? Maybe Ronja Deer, Suri Dormouse, and the rest of the gang in the dense leafy undergrowth?
Discover Free Play and Details
In Forest Friends your child can engage with the game materials during free play. Play along! Discover the pictures on the game materials together and talk to your child about them. Ask your child what they recognize and encourage them to name things. Talk to them about which animals they have already seen or heard in the forest. And just like that you're already role playing with your child.
Game 1: Little Forest Explorers
One child gets Mia Mouse. Read out a task. The child searches for the solution. Sometimes the correct answer is visible on the outer walls, sometimes only through the peep holes. If the child can't find the correct answer, help them. Once the child has found the solution, they receive a star and place it in front of them. Mia Mouse is passed on to the next child. It's now their turn. The game is over once all 5 stars have been collected.
Game 2: Play Hide and Seek
Before starting the game, everyone may look into any two holes. Every child tries to remember which animal is where. Whoever was last in a forest goes first and moves Mia Mouse one animal tile forward in a clockwise direction. The child names the animal that they see on the tile. Now it's time to think about which hole they can see the animal through. They choose the hole they think the animal is hiding in and look through it. If right, the child can take a star from the starry sky as a reward. The game ends when all the stars have been taken from the sky. The children now stack the stars they won on top of each other. The child with the highest star stack wins.
