Board Games Are Anything But Boring

Children love playing board games just for the fun of it. But you can pull a switcheroo by choosing games that have an educational component—without your child even knowing it. Chutes And Ladders is a good choice for learning numbers as well as teaching children the consequences of their decisions. With Monopoly Junior, kids practice adding numbers with dice and play money, and they also use their reading skills with real estate property and Chance cards. So pull out the game board and make family night a learning experience!
