  • I bought Jenga to pull my son away from his video games and worked great because he is using his hands and keeps him occupied. Also, Lego themes are great - you don't have to build it for them, just put them in a bin and let them create. Then I take pictures when they are done.

    Now when I call my son he tells me: "one minute mom, I'm creating something!".

    Books with pictures are also a great way to spend the time at night together.

  • We play Sorry and Trouble a lot. My daughter loves them, but her favorite is Memory.

  • Mancala, Othello, Yahtzee, Scrabble, Spy Alley, Battleship, Dominoes. We actually have tons more than those, but they are my favorites.

  • we play yahtzee alot with my son. he is 8 and in 2nd grade. when he rolls his dice, we have him tell us his best options and then on his final roll, we have him out his dice. it helps with his math and also when problem solving.. we also play Phase 10 with him.
    he has no idea that he is learning as he plays and really enjoys our game nights!

  • My son's favorite board game is Sorry. He also likes to play sequence Memory, Scrabble and Candy Land. He wants to try his hand at Clue and Monopoly. He doesn't like checkers though. He says it's too boring-lol.
