I believe playing board games with our children is a fun way for us to get involved in teaching lifelong skills such as problem solving, team playing, communication skills, and help in the development of cognitive thinking. It is so much easier to shop for these toys for children in all ages right from the comfort of our home through Amazon.ca.
Mancala: One of our favourite games, we purchased five years ago from Amazon.ca. Here is a link to purchase your own Mancala set on Amazon.ca.
Playful Patterns: Is a fun way to introduce children to understand early geometric concepts.
Scrabble: Encourages learning new vocabulary, and increases language and numeracy skills.
Say Cheese Multiplication Table: Teaches children their multiplication table, a foundation to do a variety of math concepts. It will be a fun way for children to memorize, as well as develop other skills while playing with the family.
Monkey Fractions: This memory game set builds an understanding of fractions.
LeapFrog LeapStart Interactive Early Learning System: We use this system, and find it to have a wealth of knowledge. To learn more about the benefits of the LeapStart check our in-depth post.
Over the years, I have found that these types of board games are fun to play with in the evenings to unwind after a busy day. Since we invested on lots of board games, a few years ago we built a DIY game cart so we can easily leave it in the living room, and have it accessible for children to play with and put away. If you want to know how to build your own DIY game cart see our step-by-step instructions.
