Hullabaloo is one of my favorite kid’s games. It is fun to play, keeps the kids active and (and this is the big one) they can play it on their own! These girls (ages 3, 4 and 5) initiated the game, set it up and played all on their own today. Awesome.
We’ve had the game for a few years now and have enjoyed it at home, but recently another mom brought their’s to the playground. The kids loved it and I’ve taken to bringing ours as well. It had never occurred to bring, what I considered an indoor board game, to the park, but it has been the greatest thing.
In addition to the little girls above, today saw rounds with 6 and 7 year old boys and 10 and 11 year old girls all added to the mix. There was tons of laughing, hugging and funky dancing!
I love finding (or being shown) new ways to use the things we already own. Bringing this game outside was like buying a whole new game and the new setting brought about a renewed excitement for it.
