We have a tradition of unwrapping a game and playing it as a family on Christmas Eve. This year we opened Hasbro's HiHo Cherry-O. It worked really well for our family. It has two sets of rules. One is for a cooperative game (everyone is on the same team) the other each person plays against each other. We used the cooperative game and had a wonderful time! It has the cutest little cherries, blueberries, oranges and apples to pick. If you spill your baskest or the dog gets into it, you have to put some back on the tree or bush - just like real harvesting! Okay, so it's not ture to life but the game is great for counting practice and doesn't require reading so it was a good fit for our family that includes a three year old and a four year old. HiHo Cherry-O has a 4.5 out of 5 star rating on Amazon.com (which is where I got both of these photos and the actual game). As I type this, the game costs $7.99 and has free Super Saver Shipping.
