      The Best Board Games For Kids

      When we see a board game, we often reflect on the hours of enjoyment they gave us as kids and hope our own kids will have the same awesome experiences. What we didn’t really understand at the time was how good a teacher board games were, and still are.

      Cure Boredom With Board Games
      Kids get bored on summer afternoons. Kids get bored when the internet is down. Kids, no matter how many toys or games for kids they have, eventually get bored. And for that moment, there’s simply nothing better in the entire universe than the best board games for kids. Why? They’re fun, fascinating, and entertaining for children. Take a bunch of bored kids, put a board game in front of them, and watch them transform into a group of transfixed children. So what should you be doing on that boring summer afternoon during school holidays? You already know. Now, you’ve just got to select the board games for kids you’re going to buy them. 

      Board Games: The Secret Teacher
      We never realised how much incidental learning was taking place when playing board games. We were having so much fun we never realised what else board games were teaching us. Well, here’s a list of some of the crucial life skills that kids learn from board games:
      > How to develop a strategy.
      > The importance of being patient and take turns.
      > Learning rules and playing fairly within these rules.
      > How to be social and play cooperatively.
      > How to use money.
      > How to be gracious winners and losers.
      > It helps develop language and number skills.
      > How to solve problems.
      > Encouraging creativity and imagination.
      > Indulging in fantasy and escapism.
      So when you look beneath the veneer of board games for kids, you realise how important a role board games play in developing life skills. And be good citizens. Polite, courteous, considerate and fair-minded. This quote sums it up best. “Bear in mind three essential qualities in all games of intellect; never show selfishness or wound the feelings of your adversary, be modest with a good game, lose without ill-temper, and win without bragging.” All this and more, wrapped up in popular board game favourites

      The Best Games For Kids
      There are a million games for kids. From cricket to imaginary lava, kids games are all around us. So why bother with board games for kids? Well, what stimulates their growing brains better than a challenging board game? What teaches them to play nicely with others? How can they learn while playing? We know there are innate benefits of board games. It seems that fact that they’re so much fun is almost simply a bonus. A big bonus.

      Popular Board Games for Kids
      Here are some of the more popular board games that you can play:
      > 5 Second Rule Game
      > Emoji Card Game
      > Chinese Checkers
      > Evolution - The Beginning
      > Chess
      > Connect Four
      > Avocado Smash
      > Cluedo - The Harry Potter Edition
      > Bears V Babies
      > Batman - Battle For Gotham

      The Best Board Games For Kids Last Their Childhood, Or Even A Lifetime
      Don’t think these games of kids will be left on the shelf after a month. They’re far too interesting, too challenging. Consider the chess and checkers set. Once a child masters checkers, they can move onto playing with the chess pieces. And when they master chess? Well as we know, there’s no true mastery of chess. Some board games can last a lifetime. Sure, not every game here will last a lifetime. But these board games for kids will last their childhood. At least. 

      When Will You Play Board Games?
      If you need further convincing that board games for kids make the perfect gift, here’re some of the occasions when board games are worth their weight in gold.
      > Hot days under the shade of a tree.
      > Wet, cold, dreary days when everyone is trapped inside and going stir crazy.
      > After lunch, when the adults are socialising.
      > On camping trips.
      > On Christmas Day or Easter when TV offerings are bare.
      > On school trips and excursions.
      > On long road trips.
      > When the power goes off.
      > And very importantly, when you need a whole family activity

      So all in all, board games for kids are the perfect gift. A gift that keeps on giving. And you know what they say about kids who play board games: they’re never bored.
