The nights are getting colder and it gets dark so early that it makes it tough for kids to play outside at night. Now that my older four kids are old enough to play board games we have been spending time playing old favorites and experiencing some new ones as well.
We love a good, old fashioned family game night with games –and MOST times it doesn’t end in tears anymore! It works out really well too because my older kids can help my younger kids with reading and counting while my younger ones get to work on their counting and the all important life skill that you can’t always win.
Here are some of our old and new favorites for Family Game Night:
(Ages: 5 & up/Players: 2-4/Approx. Retail Price: $14.99/Available: Spring 2014)
The MONOPOLY JUNIOR game is better than ever in 2014 and will help younger players create their first MONOPOLY game memories! To start the game, players will select one of the four new MONOPOLY JUNIOR game tokens based on the favorite classic tokens before they grew up: Scottie Dog, Cat, Battleship and Racecar. Just like the classic MONOPOLY game, young players move around the board to buy fun properties like the Ice Cream Parlor, the Zoo, the Swimming Pool and more! Buying properties, paying rent and collecting Chance Card bonuses are handled with single banknotes, making transactions fast and easy. Game play is fast paced and when one player goes bankrupt the game is over. Count your cash—the player with the most money wins!
(Ages: 4 & up/Players: 2-3/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Spring 2014)
It’s the trap-launchin’, mouse-catchin’ game that features all of your favorite ELEFUN & FRIENDS characters in one game! With an updated look and quick set-up time, the new MOUSE TRAP game will have preschoolers racing to trap those silly mice! Land on the “boot” space to set the trap in motion and try to trap your opponent’s mouse to WIN! Comes with four collectible figures: Hungry Hippo, Sneakers Mouse, Pepper Mouse, and Nacho Mouse.
(Ages: 3 & up/Players: 2—4/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Spring 2014)
