Let’s Move Together!
This year, many of our kids spend more time in front of the computer then before. So, let’s get them moving with family games.
Wonder Forge Cat in The Hat I Can Do That! Game. I have yet to find a young kid who would resist this game! Unfortunately, it’s currently only available on eBay (or similar sites). However, the same company created a new game that seems to be alike: Wonder Forge Marvel I Can Do That! Game
Wonder Forge Marvel I Can Do That! Game full of fun challenges + a little bit of counting to know who won.
Have you ever played Hot Lava in your living room? If you need help to set it up, check out this game: The Floor is Lava – Interactive Game for Kids and Adults
And how about family game of charades with kids as young as 4? Just choose age appropriate cards from the stuck of Pressman Charades for Kids and watch them go!
Goliath Games Phlat Ball is not just for throwing outside, although it’s a lot of fun. Try playing Hot Potato with it and enjoy all the giggles you get when it pops!
I have to admit: I am a big fan of carpet skates! If you have a carpet in your house, these Simtec Fun Slides Carpet Skates might be just the ticket to make your guys moving on a rainy day.
More Great Choices
Magnetic Tiles seem to be hot nowadays, and they well deserve it! But what about other old favorite building and manipulative games? Here are my two cents.
I love mosaics, especially mushroom pegs. They are great for development of fine motor skills, promoting creativity, and so much more. Check out this one: ArtCreativity Mushroom Peg Puzzle for Kids with 10-Challenges.
And don’t forget about geometric shape pattern blocks, like 155 PCS Wooden Pattern Blocks Set Geometric Shape Puzzle, and geoboards, like JCREN Wooden Geoboard 8×8 Mathematical Manipulative Material Array Block Geo Board. Both types of games provide multiple opportunities for practicing shapes and problem solving skills. And kids love them too!
