Everyone looks forward to gifts under the tree, but what if you added a twist by making the kids hunt for them? The new Snipe Hunt game from Education Outdoors is a hide-and-seek type game for two people, two teams or special single seeker play. The object of the game is to be the first player/team to find the other players/teams Snipe first and return it to the nest. If the Snipes have not been found after a period of time, they start to chirp to help the player find it and their eyes light up. Kids are sure to get a kick out of the extra hunt for this gift.
Add a Twist of Fun to the Holidays with the Snipe Hunt Game!
Snipe Hunt includes two Snipes, one green (named Smartin) and one red (named Biela), and a Snipe nest. They require 4 AAA batteries to work (2 batteries for each Snipe). They rest in the nest when not in use and there is an on/off switch to save batteries. The great thing about this games is that it can be used indoors as well as outdoors for year-round fun! Snipes starts to chirp after 2 1/2 minutes once removed from nest and turned on and the eyes light up after 5 minutes. Play at night in the dark for some added fun and adventure.
Snipe Hunt is recommended for ages 6+ but I can see my niece and nephew, who are toddlers, have a ton of fun with these! Our 8 and 10 year old thought it was fun and got them moving instead of playing on the computer and video games all day. That is a huge bonus for us!
This would be a fun game to start opening the gifts with or even end it with. Tell them you have a fun present that they have to find and watch their face as they hear the chirping sounds!
