"The Very Hungry Caterpillar™ Match and Munch Game uses the recognizable art from Eric Carle’s illustrated tale of The Very Hungry Caterpillar™ to help kids learn to identify healthy foods by practicing association and matching skills to help the caterpillar transform into a beautiful butterfly. The 55 food cards and 10 butterfly tokens are stored in the adorable caterpillar carrying case for easy transport and safe keeping. When kids are ready to play, each player receives 5 food cards to start and the remaining cards are placed in a pile. The goal is to complete a hand of either, five oranges, a hand of four strawberries and one apple, or a hand of three blueberries and two pears. Players take turns discarding and trading cards from the pile until they make one of the winning hands. When a player wins a hand, a butterfly token is awarded. Additional rounds are played until someone collects three butterflies to win. The Saturday food cards, such as cake, pie, and ice cream, are wild cards that can be used to replace any of the fruit needed to create a winning hand. These special foods are fine to have every once in a while, but should not be eaten on a daily basis like fruit. That is why players can only use one Saturday food card per hand to win. The Very Hungry Caterpillar™ Match and Munch Game is great for young kids because no reading is required to understand and play the game. Kids use the familiar Eric Carle drawings to practice their identifying and matching skills while associating healthy eating with fun.
