If you want your kids’ recreational time to still stimulate their brains, no doubt you are interested in finding educational board games that they can enjoy.
1. Worst Case Scenario
Worst Case Scenario is a game that presents a number of situations that could prove harmful, or even deadly, if one does not know what to do. Each scenario allows the player to choose from a set of actions which one they believe is how the situation should be handled, and if they choose the correct action, they can move forward on the board. As your kids play the game, they simultaneously learn how to handle themselves if the worst case scenario should occur.
One of the oldest game boards that families often enjoy on game night, Monopoly is a board game where you conduct business, and learn quite a bit about the value of money. When children play the game, they learn (whether they realize it or not) the importance of making wise financial decisions, investing where it counts, and how to get back investments with profit.
Checkers is a game that most, if not all, of us have played at some time or another. With small circular pieces in either black or red, you make movements with the end goal of eliminating all of your opponent’s pieces from the board. When children play this game, they are taught the value of thinking something through thoroughly before making a decision, and using strategy to achieve the goal at hand.
Board games can provide hours of fun and important life lessons. Include these games in your family game night in order to help your children learn while playing. Have fun!
