He finds that he is missing what he thinks is the main ingredient. What does he think he needs? Well, buffalo of course. He searches through all kinds of places with buffalo in their names and doesn't find any. When he finally finds some, he realizes that they don't have wings. That is when he reads the recipe rather than skimming it and find outs the real main ingredient. Yikes!
The rooster ends up trying the snacks the buffalo has prepared to have while they watch Super Bowl game and he loves them even better than he thought he would like their wings. Their hush puppies are so amazing he makes them for the other animals when he and the buffaloes return to the farm.
This cute book ends up with a farm animal football game and fun snacks. It is such fun!
The goal of the game was to toss the penalty flag onto the tablecloth and read the number that it landed closest too. I told JDaniel that he just had to tell me the larger white number that was closest to his penalty flag. He had a little trouble with that a first, but as we played he did a much better job.
After awhile I told him about the large and small white lines between the numbers. Then I had him help me find the exact number that my penalty flag was closest too.
This was more of an exploration of numbers. I think when he gets a little older he will be able to tell me the number exactly on his own.
If your children aren't ready to work on numbers, they could easily try to get their penalty flag onto one of the footballs or the NFL emblems on the tablecloth. It would help them work on eye- hand coordination and practice underhand throws.

It took awhile to roll the numbers needed to turn all the footballs over.
