10 Brilliant Board Games for Kids

We love our board games here. I enjoyed them as a child and that has stayed with me to this day. It’s a rare few months that go by here without a new board game arriving. Now for the purposes of this post, I’m calling them board games, though strictly speaking, they don’t all have a ‘board’, but I’m assuming you catch my drift. These are not apps or PS4 games. I firmly believe that playing board games is good for children. It teaches them so many things whilst they are having fun. The need to take it in turns Read more >

The Beauty of a Game

I’ve loved playing games for as long as I can really remember. We’d have family games nights, take a pack of cards on holidays, get a new game every Christmas, and I still ask for a new one each year to this day. I like getting my brain working in a fun way, I like testing out my knowledge, I enjoy some quick thinking. I think there’s plenty that can be learned from them, too. Sitting down to a game can be educational in so many ways. It teaches sharing, turn-taking, understanding and recalling rules, the skills or knowledge required Read more >
