FAMILY GAME NIGHT!

Some of my favorite childhood memories involve board games, family and laughter. This seems to be a thing of the past for many families. We get so busy, have screens to distract us and sometimes, it is just easier to hang out and watch a movie.

I have learned over the years of nannying that kids LOVE game nights!! Each child may have their favorite game and we are so lucky to have so many options. We even have full stores dedicated to games in most large malls. If buying a new game is not for you take a minute to look online and learn a new card game, or charades. SO many options are out there.

SOme of my all time favorite games for the various ages are

Preschool- Candyland, Dr Suess- The Cat in the Hat, I can do that

Elem. School, lower- Tripoley, Sequence, Sorry, and Charades

Elem School, upper – Clue, Pictionary, Life, Monopoly

Older Kids/adults – Catan, Ticket to Ride, Boggle, Scrabble, and of course Trivia Pursuit
