The Mommy Files: Three Board Games for Your Toddler
Just a bit ago I told you about the Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game and how much our toddler loves it.
Which got me thinking that probably a lot of toddlers like board games.
Yes, we often get caught up in the ease of apps, but there’s nothing quite like sitting down for an old-school board game … it gives you the opportunity to connect with your kiddo on a very different level.
Plus, you can use the time to catch up on what might be going on at school or daycare/preschool.
Of course, I’ve already recommended the Squirrel game, which is fairly new to the market. Another game I highly recommend, and that was a favorite of our other daughter, is Scrabble Jr.
Because the letters are printed on the board, it’s easy for this age group to match them up to spell words and gain confidence while playing.
Any form of Zingo is popular as well. This is BINGO, with a contemporary twist.
While the original version showcases images with words, there is also a counting and sight words version, which are equally fun.
Newer releases include a bilingual version as well as a spelling version. My goal is to have the three original versions in our game arsenal.
What are your favorite board games for your kids?
What about games that can grow with your kids or that are appropriate for a span of ages? Since we have 10 years between our two oldest, I’m always looking for those, too.
