Looking for a fun idea for your kids Easter Egg hunt this year? Then how about using the family fun game Ultra Dash from Interplay to add to the fun. You can add chocolate treats to the targets for children to collect as they dash about following the flashing colours adding to their fun. Also a great game during this stay at home isolation spell that we are having
The Ultra Dash game comes with five multicoloured targets that are bright and easy to see. This game is ideal for either indoors or outside in the garden if the weather is pleasant enough. You simply place them on a flat surface either on the ground or on an easily reachable surface.
The Tagger is an ergonomic shaped stick that you hold and requires 3 AA batteries. It then acts as your main tool in the game as from here you can control the number of players, timed countdowns and which game mode you wish to play.
It’s also is your main game controller that you hold during play and the top flashes various colours, each matching the colours of the targets and determines where you need to place the tagger. It also records your score on how accurate you are in placing the tagger into the correct target.
There are three modes of game play:
- Beat the Clock – A race to hit all five targets as fast as you can which you can either play alone or compete against others by taking turns and checking your scores.
- Target Tally – Choose the length of your game whether it be 30 seconds or a minute and see how many targets you can hit in that time
- Relay Race – split into teams and take turns of hitting five targets each before passing to the next player in your team.
As a fun idea for Easter we put chocolate bunnies into each target for the children to collect as they played – off course this was a hit and encouraged them to keep playing for longer! I also found that by playing in the garden, the children were clearly keeping active by running between the targets and being competitive as they are, beat me in the the time challenges.
You can see the game in action in this short video clip we’ve made:
If you are looking for a fun game to keep the kids active then this would be great especially in the current climate. It could be a long Summer if school remains closed until September to Ultra Dash is the idea way to have fun and keep fit!
