Hide and Seek of the Week

You climbed up Rainbow Trail, ran passed the Crooked Old Peanut Brittle House and found your way through the Lollipop Woods. But be careful! Don’t get stuck in Molasses Swamp! No, it’s not a dream. It’s Candyland! This classic pre-school board game was created by Eleanor Abbott in 1945 and first produced by Milton Bradley in 1949. Since then, there have been four different versions of Candyland, the most recent released in 2002.

Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don’t forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and engaging your child in the conversation. For example: What’s your favorite color? What candy would you make your own Candyland out of? Or simply play a game of Candyland when you get home!
