Laugh and Learn Together During Family Game Night

Family game night used to be our family’s standard Friday night “thing”. Then the kids got old enough to watch movies that both my husband and I enjoyed, so now the two activities vie for that time slot.

It still remains the “go to” activity when we have a group of folks over, however. And our favorite family memory, which remains a current trend, is to pull out our stash on New Year’s Eve. It’s an annual tradition to spend the night with some long-time special friends of ours and go through game after game. A few of the ones below are some of our favorites.

Whether you’re playing with a big group of friends, your immediate family, or doing it during “date time” with the kiddos or your hubby, games are an enjoyable, low-stress way to start some good conversations and build relationships. There are just many ways they help to develop those oft-mentioned ‘social skills’ that non-homeschoolers caution us about, too, as described in this article in the Bright Ideas Press blog.

And they make great gifts. So here are some suggestions to get you started!
