Most children won’t ask for these but here are 10 of the best board games for kids.
I hope that your kids don’t put any of these games on their holiday list. And I doubt they will because they probably have never heard of them. In fact I’m pretty sure that many of you reading this may not even know about some of these…
If you are like me and are always looking for ways to pry the iPad out of your children’s hands or get them playing games WITHOUT screens, then this list is for you. I am a HUGE fan of board games and wanted to share 10 of the best board games for kids here with you just in time for the holidays.
Now before we get to the games I want to mention why they are so important. The best board games for kids give families a chance to come together, play, and have fun! It’s these times that memories are made of. And if you have been negligent in having family game night lately (guilty), there’s alway the chance to start it up again this Winter Break!

We own every.single.game. on this list and if it’s included here it’s because my kids and I have enjoyed playing it. Sometimes I’m surprised by the games they love (the Science Ninja game was a big hit with my middle schooler last year) and sometimes I love seeing my kids enjoy a classic (Family Trivial Pursuit is really fun). And for anyone that needs some solitary game time I highly recommend Rush Hour!
