** NEW Book, Boardgame, and Combo Deals, out now **
"Te Kēmu Waiata Koa/The Happy Song Game" is a boardgame based on our songs "The Happy Song" and "Te Waiata Koa", it's Māori equivalent.
This kēmu/game takes you on a wee haerenga/journey, as Kiwi navigates his way around his emotions! On the board are "Colour Wheel" spaces that allow you to spin "Te Wīra Tae/The Colour Wheel" and do whatever activity/challenge you land on!
The kēmu/game consists of a board, (which is a laminated A4-sized 210gsm cardstock), and two spinners - "Te Wīra Tau/The Number Wheel", which acts as a dice, and "Te Wīra Tae/The Colour Wheel". The spinners are also on laminated 210gsm cardstock, with a metal paperclip as the spinner, secured in the centre, by a metal fastener.
The whole game folds up and fits into an A5-sized envelope that will slip into the back of your new "Happy Song" book, so they can stay together! Each kēmu/game will come with a wee strip of double-sided tape to enable you to do this, if you wish. It is aimed at 2-8yr old tamariki, but is best played with the whole whānau!!
Please note: The kēmu does not include counters, as we are encouraging resourcefulness by challenging tamariki to get creative, and to find items around the house that they can use as counters (we have used coins, acorns, scrunched up bits of paper, flowers/leaves, counters from other games or hair accessories... the possibilities are endless!).
Also, if the spinner doesn't spin, or gets stuck, just push the metal fastener up from underneath, to allow more space between the laminated cardstock and fastener for the paper clip to spin, and give it another go! :)
THANK YOU all SO much for your support and we hope you and your whānau enjoy our game!! xo
