Here are some of momstown Finds favourite family games – with kids of all ages in mind!
Yahtzee from Hasbro comes in many different varieties for preschoolers and their families – there's sure to be a licensed brand that excites your child! This kid-friendly version uses picture instead of numbers, no reading required and it's a quick and fun game perfect for the preschool set.
The Hedbanz game from Spinmaster is fun for young ones too – each player has a Disney character on their 'hedbanz' and the game is all about asking questions to figure out who's on your head!
Whac-a-Mole from Fisher-Price is a mini version of the popular arcade game, with lights, sounds and pop up moles to whack. Great for one or two players to practice their eye-hand coordination!
If you've got school-agers, particularly boys into the 'gross' factor, they will LOVE the game of Grossabulary. And they won't realize that they're practicing sight words and sentence building. Comes with word and card sets so that kids can make up the silliest (grossest) sentence using their vocabulary!
Another classic game is Jacks! This set, by Melissa & Doug, has everything you need to teach kids the classic 'bounce and pick'em up' game. Great to take on the go, it all fits into a wooden box.
