An Orchard Toys classic, where players collect and count bird cards before the scaredy cat appears!
This fun counting game is a race against time! Try and be the first to collect the most bird cards before the scarecrow picture is complete. However, watch out for the scaredy cat, who can catch your birds and take away all your cards in one go! At the end of the game, use your maths skills to count up the birds on your cards…the player with the most birds wins.
Each of the bird cards has a brightly coloured background which can be used to teach younger children to recognise different colours. For older children, Scaredy Cat helps teach them about competitiveness, winning and losing, as it can sometimes be sour grapes and tantrums when they have all their cards taken away!
Contains 41 bird cards, 6 scarecrow picture cards, 3 cat cards and an instruction leaflet.
Educational Benefits: Develops number and counting skills, develops personal and social skills, and encourages observational skills.
