- I love that this game gets your kids up and moving. Kids learn to follow the direction given on the card, so they jump, catch, play, sing and dance. This burns plenty of energy and teaches kids motor skills for a great foundation of learning moving forward.
- When talking about board games with a friend of mine, she reminded me about how much I love Sushi Go! We don’t always play by the rules in our household, but Ben loves to mix and match the cards and pick his favorite. This game isn’t a big bulky box, so we love that it doesn’t take up much space and will be loved for years to come.
- If you can’t tell by the condition of the box in the above picture, Let’s go Fishin’ is probably the most popular game at our house as of late. I remember iterations of this game when I was a kid and not much has changed. Again, your child is learning fine motor skills by trying to hover a magnet over the correct fish to “catch” it. I even find myself fishing and having tons of fun playing.
- This game helps with color development and working together. If you work in teams, you will save more owls quickly. Ben is just getting into this one, but I can see how great it will be for his teamwork skills as the years go on.
- A friend of mine recommend this game to me (and it was recommended to her by a friend too!). Any game that multiple people recommend is one I will absolutely try. This is another game that is great for teaching the skills of working on a team. We have been focusing on that a lot since Ben has not been in daycare and hasn’t had as much interaction with other kids as he normally would. These games have been very helpful!
- Made for ages 3 and up, we just bought this game to have on hand to help with counting skills. Like many children’s games, the basic premise of this game is based on counting, matching up colors etc. In Hi Ho Cherry-O, your kid will pick fruit off the tree and add it into the bucket.
- This game is still around for a reason. It’s a classic that everyone has loved at one point in their life. Of course, over the years it has been modernized in the way of graphics, but it is still just as fun as ever!
- Another classic that was one of my favorites as a kid. Candy Land is slowly working it’s way into popularity in our house. I’m excited to have the twins play it as they get older as well. Plus, the extra bonus is that I just love playing this game so it’s always a treat to get to play with my kids.
- My mother-in-law gave us this game, and it is so so fun. We spend hours looking outside for leaves and feathers and whatever, it’s just great! I love that the game has indoor and outdoor.
According to Ben, these are some of the best board games for kids, but I would love to hear if you have any more suggestions. Just leave a comment below – we’re always looking to add more to our collection!
