Have a serious case of sibling rivalry at home? Maybe it's time for some board games that teach your kids to work together as a team -- rather than battle it out as individuals.

Peaceable Kingdom has come out with five new games that teach cooperation. Count Your Chickens, Hoot Owl Hoot, Lost Puppies, Mermaid Island and Stone Soup unite the players against a common obstacle -- think a fox in the hen house or a Sea Witch -- forcing your little ones to share and strategize to win.

The games are made from 100 percent green ingredients and are perfect for kids ages 3 and older.

And, if they keep your kids from fighting for the 15 minutes or so each game takes to play, well, that's $14.99 well spent.

Find the games at and specialty stores and online boutiques.
