It’s a number and counting bone-anza!
Age 4+

This preschool counting bone-anza is a summer day trip to a dog beach!

Shelby buried bones in the sand and needs your help collecting them. Help her dig up the most bones and you win! Children take turns using the adorable Shelby Squeezer to fill their dog bowl with bones.
