Learning Games

Parents appreciate gifts that are both fun and educational. Use this opportunity to help a child grow and learn. No matter the age, games can be challenging and help us gain new skills. Here are some ideas:

Literacy skills:

  • Scrabble (or other alphabet/word board game)
  • Hand held electronic reader, such as Leapster or Tag Junior
  • Video games involving strategy and reading

Math skills:

  • Connect 4
  • Monopoly
  • Puzzles

Logic Skills:

  • Guess Who
  • Risk
  • Memory

Almost all games played with others help improve social and language skills. Playing games involves turn taking, communication and working together. These are great opportunities for growth for any child.


Games for Teens and Adults

Robo PongAdults enjoy games as well! Try giving a party board or trivia game this Christmas. You might get invited to play!

Many teens like strategy games, whether played on a board, with cards, or online. These kinds of games can keep players entertained for hours. Many video games can be played with multiple players, so they have the capability of being played solely or with friends.

Keep in mind, while searching for video games, the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) rating of the game. The title doesn’t always give an accurate description of the gameplay. Check out reviews and watch gameplay previews on YouTube before getting a game for a younger teens. That said, there are loads of games that are fun and appropriate for all ages.


Family Game Night

It doesn’t have to be Christmas to get the family together, but it’s a good time to start. Start a family game night tradition, and keep it going all year long. Board games are fun to play any time, which is why they make great gift ideas. A new game can symbolize a new tradition in your family, which makes it a meaningful Christmas gift.

Start off with a family dinner, which can be made together or beforehand. Or order takeout from your favorite local restaurant so no one has to cook. Clean up is a breeze if you use paper plates or casual plastic ware. Even the kids can help wash.

Choose a game that everyone can participate in. For example, if you have a Kindergartner in your midst, don’t play a game that will go over their heads. In some cases, you can team up, allowing older kids to help the younger ones. Read descriptions and game instructions before buying so you know what the game entails.

Switch your game every so often. You don’t want family game night to loose its appeal by being boring or mundane. Try collecting several appropriate choices, so that your family can decide what they’re in the mood for when the big day comes. When all family members enjoy game night, it’s a success.


Game Night for Grown-Ups

Get your grown-up friends together and host a game night. Serve drinks and snacks. Make sure to provide a fun game. There is a whole industry catering to game nights, so there are hundreds of games to choose from. Some games are played in groups, teams or couples. We’ve heard of some fun games that put men and women against each other in a battle of the sexes!

Board games for adults generally include trivia, drawing, acting things out, guessing words, describing words, asking questions and solving puzzles. Some are more serious, and some downright inappropriate. Give one of these games as a Christmas gift this year and encourage someone else to host the party.
