If you’ve read my blog for long, you know how much I love board games and gameschooling. I’m sharing today about Wildcraft, an herbal-themed board game. I got it years ago and occasionally get it out to play with my younger children. It’s some mild fun and you get to learn what herbal remedies work for what ailments. I look forward to playing it with my grandchildren when they get older. I’d say it’s perfect for ages 4-10.
It’s on sale right now, 30% off, till midnight PT of Thurs. July 28, 2022. If you buy it you also get some fun bonuses. Here’s what the creator of the game, Kimberly Gallagher, says about it: (I receive no money from you buying this, I’m just sharing about a game that holistic minded moms will enjoy playing with their family)
Our board game introduces kids to 27 healing herbs, including Burdock, Calendula, Chamomile, Chickweed, Comfrey, Cottonwood, Dandelion, Echinacea, Elder, Field Mint, Herb Robert, Huckleberry, Jewelweed, Lemon Balm, Marshmallow, Wild Mustard, Nettle, Oregon Grape, Pine, Plantain, Wild Rose, St. John’s Wort, Valerian, Violet, White Willow, Yarrow, and Yellow Dock.
These are all great healing herbs for kids to learn.
And THIS was exactly why parents were emailing me. They really wanted to learn even more about these herbs than what was in the game.
While Wildcraft! teaches kids about the basics of these herbs, a board game can only teach a person so much about how to use them in real life.
This is why I created Wildcraft! Plants: A Pocket Guide…
This printable field guide comes as a bonus during our Wildcraft! summer sale.
This pocket guide explores all 27 plants in the game in more detail. Each page has a beautiful botanical illustration that points out key identifying characteristics, as well as a quick reference that shows what each herb is used for. Fun little stories help your kids remember all the details.
- Wildcraft! Plants: A Pocket Guide
- Wildcraft! Botanical Coloring Book (print as many copies as you want for all the kids in your home)
- The Wildcraft! Story (adds another level of learning to the game)
The Wildcraft! summer sale ends tomorrow, Thursday July 28 at midnight Pacific time.
After tomorrow, the game goes back up to regular price.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer!
