Benefits to having a Family Game Night

1. First and foremost LAUGHTER!! Games offer a fresh experience every time you play, new ways to play and laugh together and create new memories!

2. Family Bonding. Playing games allows your kids to learn from you and from each other. It encourages a sense of connection and respect among family members.

3. Learning. Games can be a great learning tool. For instance, CLUE is good for learning deductive reasoning. MONOPOLY is ideal for teaching beginning budget skills and YAHTZEE provides a fun way to teach simple addition and multiplication.

4. Life Skills. Games teach kids important life skills such as patience, concentration, teamwork and perseverance. By taking turns, following rules and even losing a game, kids learn skills that they can apply at school and in the home.
