Full Answer

Feed the Monkey is designed to help toddlers learn to recognize numbers. It provides toddlers with the opportunity to practice counting aloud, understand quantity and identify colors.

The game includes the printable board game, a set of printable paper bananas and a printable cube with different colored sides. Game tokens are not included; bottle tops or small toys are recommended for use as tokens.

To begin playing the game, each player chooses a token, and the bananas are divided equally among the players. Next, each player takes a turn rolling the cube and moves his token to the matching colored circle on the board. The player reads the number in the circle and then places that amount of bananas on the monkey's mouth which is in the center of the game board. The player who reaches the finish circle first wins the game.
