My family loves board games. We try to have a family game night at least once a week, and I am always on the hunt for new and fun games for the whole family to enjoy. I recently learned about some amazing new games from a company called “Simply Fun.” Not only are these games a blast to play, every single one of them is educational, too. And when I say educational, I don’t mean in a boring way. Kids will have no idea they are using their brains.
Simply Fun is an award winning game company. To see the impressive list of awards they earned in 2013, go here. What is great about these games is that they are designed to be played (from start to finish) in just 30 minutes, so even if you are crunched for time, you can still have a fun family game night. Of course, you will likely want to play again and again. These games work on skills like critical thinking, spatial reasoning, math, vocabulary builders, fine motor skill development, and more! The recommended ages range from pre-school through teen/family – fun for all ages!
My family particularly loves Linkity, Eye to Eye, Mirror Mansion, and Qualities (definitely for an older group of kids). Even though none of my kids are preschool/early elementary age anymore, they also love Dreaming Dragon, and now you have a chance to win it! Amanda Vandusen, a Simply Fun Playologist, is offering this incredibly fun game to one lucky winner. Click the rafflecopter link below to enter the contest which closes on the 27th at 2:00 PM!
