The Best Board Games For Kids 

Connect 4 

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend time with your kids, look no further than Connect 4. The first player to get 4 of their discs in a row wins the game. Kids can stack their discs vertically, horizontally, or diagonally to create a line of four. This classic board game teaches your child strategic thinking and helps them develop their cognitive skills. It also helps them work on their fine motor and visual/perceptual motor skills. Children need to be able to pick up the checker-like pieces and reach to put them into the slots at the top of the board. 

Guess Who? 

If you’re looking for a board game that will help your child develop some of their essential social skills, Guess Who? is the perfect choice. The game consists of two boards with 24 character images attached to flippable place holders. Each player takes a turn to pick up a character card and then ask questions to eliminate characters from the tray that they don’t know. This helps them narrow down their choices and become more savvy detectives. It also develops their deductive reasoning and receptive & expressive language skills. 

Game Of Life 

Originally created in 1860 by Milton Bradley, the Checkered Game of Life is an American classic that simulates a person’s journey through their life, from early adulthood to retirement. It’s one part wheel of fortune and one part roulette, but with a twist: Players get to decide which path they want to take. A great way to teach kids about the ups and downs of life, this classic game encourages critical thinking. It also gives kids a better understanding that they don’t always get what they want.
