Do you remember the good old days spent playing board games like Cluedo and Monopoly with family and friends?
Board games have been coming back with a vengeance these past few years. There are literally thousands of them to choose from these days, many of which are family games you can play with young kids.
Many day care centers in Florida have board games kids can borrow and play with. The best games are easy to learn and fun to play. Here are some of the reasons why board games are so great for kids:
- They Are Social. Board games allow kids to take a break from their screens. Games force players to speak and engage directly with other players, so kids can develop their communications skills. Some of the best bonding moments with loved ones may come from board game sessions.
- They Are Educational. Board games teach kids how to understand and follow simple instructions. They also teach kids the basics of creative and critical thinking. Many a preschool in Florida uses board games as fun educational materials
- They Promote Literacy and Math. Playing games involves reading cards and other game components. Computing the best moves and how many points are needed to win also encourages kids to do quick math in their heads.
