First up we have a super cute math game called Glow Spotters. The Glow Spotters Troop is on a nature adventure, trying to count fireflies to earn their Firefly badges. Each player has a set of firefly boards numbered 1 to 10. Players roll the die and collect various shaped Glow Tiles to reach the sum of fireflies on their boards. The first player to complete all their boards wins the game and receives their Firefly badge.

How about a fun word game? Is or Isn’t is a vocabulary-building bingo-style game! Play along with the adorable creatures that live in this game’s thesaurus. They will help you learn synonyms and antonyms. Players take turns rolling the die and moving their character pawn around the gameboard, landing on word cards or challenge spaces. When you identify the synonyms or antonyms on your bingo board, cover the squares with a token. Be the first player to complete a line of four tokens horizontally, vertically or diagonally and win the game. This game recently won a Play that Advances Language (PAL) Award, and it won’t just challenge your 5 and 6-year olds, but parents as well!
