Did I ever mention that game playing is one of our biggest family traditions? Tyler's family plays games, competitively, sillily, loudly, and well into the night, every time they get together. It's so much fun.
All of our kids like to get in on the games when they can, but S.? Any moment he thinks dad is free, he's asking to play a game. There's pretty much nothing he likes more. After Tyler was done with his meetings today, the kids jumped at the chance to play with him.
[Oh, and one thing you should know is that we don't go easy on the kids. We play things that are age-appropriate, but we really play to win. Good sportsmanship is a must for winners AND losers!]
Here are some of our very favorites -
Preschoolers love Hisss. So fun, and quick - always a plus with my tiny attention span.
Our school age kids love Mystery Garden, Labyrinth, Settlers of Catan, and, of course, an old-fashioned game of dominoes or war.
What are your favorite family games? We love new finds!
