Our family has been having a blast playing Clover Leap. I really love the beauty of it, and my kids are having fun while (shhhh) learning!
The first thing you notice about the game is the box. I know you’re thinking, “Duh, that’s the first thing you see!” But believe me: you’ll really notice this box—it’s well built, just like the rest of the game.
The goal of Clover Leap is to help kids recognize the building blocks of sentences: subject, verb, adjective, and object. Players roll the dice and move sheep around the board collecting clover (representing the different parts of the sentence) to complete full sentences. The player with the most complete sentences at the end of the game is the winner.
My kids have really enjoyed seeing who can come up with the funniest sentences. A couple of our favorites are “I race hairy mice” and “We make scary sheep.” My kids, ages three through nine, all love this game, and so do I. My oldest is learning the difference between an adjective and a verb while my middle child is growing his reading skills. My three-year-old is learning to follow instructions and picking up a few words along the way!
I must admit that I love this game for its looks. It is beautiful and very well made. In fact, it’s so sturdy I’ll easily be able to pass it down to the grandkids someday. The pieces are all made of wood. They’re lovely and feel good to the touch.
Clover Leap is a game my kids ask to play every couple of days. It was easy to figure out, and we laugh so hard over our silly sentences. I am thankful for a great resource that combines laughter with learning!
