If your family is anything like mine you probably have a lot of time to be together this time of year. My husband's job brings him indoors during the winter months and he has lots of opportunities to spend quality time with our children. One of their favorite things to do is play board games together [and/or wrestle]. We love to give our kids games for Christmas gifts each year and our stockpile of board games is growing steadily! I thought I would share some of MY family's favorite games, as well as EMILY's family choices [since her kids are older] ... therefore giving you a wide-range of game ideas!
What are some of YOUR favorite games to play???
Hand and Foot
Nertz [aka Peanuts]
Apples to Apples
Ticket to Ride
Settlers of Catan (Emily says that this is a "great strategy game for geeky people" Haha.)
Games to Play with Young Ones:
The Ladybug Game
Don't Break the Ice
Checkers [and/or Chinese Checkers]
