I’m looking for game ideas for my 6 year old son that we can play together as a family. What are some of your favorites?

Thanks!

One of my fondest memories as a child is all the fun I had playing Monopoly Junior with my Gma. I just loved that game! =D

Our 6 yr old saw "Don't Break The Ice" on a YouTube video and asked for it. He was obsessed for a while and it was a quick and easy game we could play together. He still doesn't do well with board games that have a lot of rules/pieces--he makes up his own way of playing instead. :laughing:

:good: Glad it helped! It was one that I still have fun playing too.

He is also a fan of Jenga--he has the original and got the oversized version for his birthday in December.

We just got back from vacation and she LOVED playing Sorry. Spot it is another favorite. She has yeti in my spaghetti at school and really likes that too. Memory games are always fun.

Now, her favorite is chess, but that's not as much a family game.

My dad brought HeadBanz for the girls when he was in last week, and it's super fun!
