Playing games with your children is a great way to spend some quality time together and help build childhood memories.
Coming from a larger family with three older brothers I clearly remember that Sunday evening was family time, and while “It’s a knockout” played on the TV we were all busy with our favourite toys and games such as Twister, Buckaroo and Monopoly (if you remember these games you are officially old).
The children’s toys and games of today are far more advanced than the ones we played with yesteryear, but are just as entertaining and can be a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
Card games are not only fun but also educational, and are a great way to teach children to count and to boost their memory skills. Djeco offer a great selection of card games that are suitable for a range of different age groups. All highly decorated, they are both pleasing to the eye and fun to play with and cost far less than a trip to the cinema.
Magnetic board games, now replace the more traditional “snakes and ladders” and children love to play with these interactive toys. Fishing for a magnetic fish is great for building hand-eye coordination, and such games guarantee to create an afternoon full of fun.
Role-playing toys and games have proven to boost the social skills of our children while teaching them important life lessons. Role-playing with your child will not only set them up for later in life, but it is a great way to interact with them on their level and terms.
Children’s toys and games encourage us to act out our wildest dreams, so why no indulge in a bit of daydreaming with your kids today.
