Games For Little Kids AND Big Kids
There are so many kids products on the market it is sometimes overwhelming when trying to choose what would be the right game for your kids! Here are just a few of the many fun games for kids out there.
As an adult, I love the game Apples to Apples. It’s simple and quick to learn and so much fun! Luckily, this game comes in a Junior version for kids! Wonderful! In fact many of the great games we love as adults come in a “junior” or “kids” version. That is the first place I would look, because if it’s something you love, then most likely your kids will too! And as they get older they will know the games you play and can jump right in.
There are many other adult board games that come in a “kids” or “junior” version. Some fun games for kids to look for are Clue Jr., Boggle Jr., Pictionary Jr., Scrabble Jr. and Sequence for kids. If you have a board game you love, I would just Google the game title with “junior” or “kids” to see if there is a version for the younger crowd. You might be surprised by how many there are.
If you are looking for classic fun games for kids, there are plenty out there. Some that have stood the test of time are Sorry!, Guess Who?, Trouble, Connect 4, Uno, The Game of Life and Twister. These are all a blast to play, so its no wonder that they are still around.
Still not what you are looking for? Maybe you would like something more recent, or unique. In that case, you could go for the Cranium games for kids. There are several to choose from such as Cranium Cadoo, Cranium Whoonu?, Cranium Cariboo Island, and more! Even the names are fun. A great thing about the Cranium games is that there is usually something for everyone – trivia, drawing, charades, you name it!
Some other unique games for kids would be: Totally Gross The Game, You Gotta Be Kidding (The Would You Rather Game For Kids), Story Cubes, Hedbanz Game, or Scavenger Hunt For Kids. There are also a lot of games made from movies or TV as well, so if your child has a favorite, you could look for a game that goes along with that. For example, my niece loves Phineas and Ferb the cartoon. So if I Google “Phineas and Ferb board game” it came up with “Phineas and Ferb 104 Days of Summer Board Game”. Perfect!
