Board Games

Games, games, and more games, that is what makes a dull, boring day come to life. Homeschooling families should have a wide assortment of board games at their disposal. Not only are board games great family-time activities, but they are also an excellent source for learning and reinforcing academics.

Keep the learning stuff as just your secret. If you tell your child you are going to help them work on developing small muscles skills, improve their memory, practice classifying, following directions, learning fair play, increasing their attention span, or improving their visual discrimination, they are likely to tell you they do not want to play. I won’t tell if y0u won’t.

A great place to pick up board games is at yard sales. Always check the game to make sure all the pieces are there before you purchase it. For fun, challenge your children to make up their own board game.
