Creative Play | QuBits

Sunday mornings are typically spent lazing around, playing games, painting, playing outside- all the things to which there should be no time limit. It is perhaps one of the best days in our home because there are no activities planned and we don’t have an agenda to be anywhere at a specific time. This Sunday…

Chicky Boom

Another toddler approved game! Chicky boom teaches the concept of balance and also simple addition as each game piece has a number on it and when both sides are equal, the chicks balance, otherwise they fall! #BlueOrangegames
