Cars, teddy bears, pretend plays and toys of all sorts are common for kids and they enjoy playing with it. But giving them board games to play is a whole different experience. They learn to follow rules, build strategy, work in a team and focus on winning the game. Board games are a great way to keep them engaged and they can spend hours playing with it. The appropriate age to introduce kids to board games is around 3 to 4 years. It is also fascinating to watch them play and think. Some of the board games whichy kids enjoy playing are listed here. I also plan a games night for family once a week and its a fun bonding time for everyone.
