We’ve recently tried to reduce the amount of TV our kids watch and increase the amount of time we spend as a family by playing board games and card games after dinner. I wish I could say it has been a huge success, but I am glad to report we have made some progress.
We started with some card games like Uno and Apples to Apples Junior which Timmy, our 4 year old, can play with some help. His older siblings really love playing our favorite board game, The Settlers of Catan by Mayfair Games, but we haven’t tried that as a whole family just yet. I think something like this Bamboo Official Settlers of Catan Board would help us to play a game over several nights because we’d be able to safely move it off the dining room or coffee table for meals and homework. I know what is going on my Christmas wish list.
Unplugging your family’s entertainment is a great way to save energy, have fun together and learn new things. Just read one more of our blog posts before turning off your computer 😉
