Cuyler got a few games for his birthday last week which has been great.
We have never been a family who “games” together. We’ve had board games over the years and have tried to have family game nights but it never really worked out. Cuyler was never interested and Eva was too young for the games that Cam was interested in and Cam was too old for the games Eva was interested in.
I think we’ve turned a corner in that we are able to enjoy some time together while playing a game.
This is a great game because a) he loves Angry Birds and B) he has to recreate pattern on the card with the blocks. It’s a good thinking game and allows them to work together to build the structure.
Good ol’ Trouble. Cuyler was never interested in this game in the past but he seems to have more patience for it now. It’s a quick moving game with not a lot of waiting but a lot of turn taking.
And is it just me or does every other parent who plays with game with their kid get uber competetive? I swear if I only have 2 pegs at “home” and the kids have more I get a little antsy. And I have to hide my frustration every time I pop a 1 and they pop a 6…I’m looking for ideas. What are your favourite games to play with your kids?
