My children love to play games – all kinds. My little often feel left out when it comes to game night, so we try to mix up the age level and difficulty of games we play. We also like to utilize games in our homeschool. Learning by playing is so beneficial, especially in the preschool years. It is a fun and interactive way to reinforce letters, colors, counting, patterns and so much more!
Since games can be fun yet educational, we have given and received many of these games for Christmas and even birthdays. Games are a great way to break up the school day and show your little ones that learning really is fun! We also use games to teach our kids hand-eye coordination and how to take turns and about consequences and rewards. There are so many teaching opportunities with games.

Character Building games are ones we use to help teach our kids how to take turns, work as a team or learn to lose.
