Our family, more specifically my youngest daughter (8 years old) and myself, have a ton of food allergies and crazy-sensitive skin. We try to stick with only natural products for medicine and take a handful of supplements. When it comes to scents and perfumes, we love essential oils (don’t worry, I am not selling you anything!)

I was on Pinterest one day and saw an ad for WildCraft: A Cooperative Board Game that Explores Healing Herbs. It looked really cool, so I reached out to the company and they sent me a game set to look over. Wildcraft is suitable for ages 4 to adult and works with 1-4 players.

Here is the description from the website:

Wildcraft! An Herbal Adventure Game is a cooperative board game that explores healing herbs. Wildcraft teaches 25 important edible and medicinal plants and their uses in mostly first aid situations (wildcrafting is the harvesting of wild plants.) 

Players learn about plants by connecting the icon on the challenge or “trouble” cards with the icons on the plant cards. If a player has a “burdock” card in their herb basket and draws a “hungry” card, then the player can turn the cards in and move to the next rest space. Though it is a cooperative game, there is plenty of strategy and drama as players travel up the mountain to the Huckleberry Patch and back to Grandma’s before nightfall. The only way to get back safely is to help each other out. However, it’s ok if you don’t make it. Grandma will come and get you. :)

Wildcraft! is a great introduction to the world of edible and medicinal herbs for children of ALL ages. It’s a beautifully illustrated, nature based, educational, cooperative game created in the tradition of the classic board games. Kids love the “Chutes and Ladders” type of play. Wildcraft! features storytelling and fosters the imagination. It’s one of the best natures games, being that it connects kids to nature. It’s an herb game and an educational game.

Wildcraft! includes a 20×20 inch game board, instructions, 4 player pieces, 52 plant cards, 52 trouble cards, 25 cooperative cards, and a spinner. It also comes with a downloadable story to enhance the story of the game. Wildcraft! is made in the U.S.A. and made with green materials. It was chosen one of the Top Natural Toys of 2008 by Mothering Magazine. One to four players, ages 4 to adult. No prior knowledge of plants or herbs is needed. No reading is required for younger players.




My daughter and I have played this game several times. She is remembering what the plants look like and the healing properties of them – and I am learning new things too! Just the other day she saw a commercial that was talking about echinacea and she remembered that it boosts the immune system and helps fight colds and flu. Yes, I was thrilled the game really helped her remember this! 

I like that it’s not a boring game and I can actually learn some things too. One of my favorite natural go-to’s for any type of sickness is oregano oil and I was super excited to learn about a supplement called Oregacillin that is much easier to take than making diluted capsules with oregano essential oil.
