Winter is coming and those sneaky, snacky squirrels need your help storing some munchies for the months ahead. Spread the colorful acorns on the tree. Then, spin the spinner, pick up the designated acorn with the squirrel squeezers and place it in the matching hole in your log. Collect all the colors first to win. But beware: the spinner isn’t always your friend. So be sneaky and strategic, little squirrels. Win or lose, little ones will build hand-eye coordination, strategic thinking and matching skills. Double bonus: this beautifully illustrated game is almost as fun for parents as it is for preschoolers.

The Idea

Help the little squirrels left to the fate of the fickle spinner stock up for the winter.

The Brains

Teaches matching and strategy skills and exercises fine motor coordination.

The A-Ha

Using the squirrel tweezers can be just as tricky for both kids and adults.

Brain Health Expert Says

Teaches matching and strategy skills and exercises fine motor coordination.

The Brain Coach Says

Sneaky Snacky Squirrel is great for teaching very young kids some of the basics of playing games in general: turn taking, wheel spinning, following simple rules, etc. It also builds pre-writting skills. Specifically, it strengthens the "pincher grip" which is essential for writing.

Help him hibernate!
