I’ve said before a couple of times that I don’t necessarily agree with limiting screen time for children – it certainly doesn’t work for us as a family and even if it did, I’m more an advocate of giving them other options to encourage them away from electronics.
One thing I make sure we do together is play – we play cards, board games and even have family xbox tournaments together. No matter what the kids are doing or planning to do, if I suggest a family game night they will always say yes. And some of our happiest family moments have been sat around our dining room table playing together.
Here’s some of our favourite games at the moment….
We were asked to choose some games from the House of Fraser website to play as a family which is where we got Headbandz from. We also got the new version of Trivial Pursuit where you bet on whether or not the other players are going to get their questions right or not and although we had a great time playing it with our friends, it’s definitely not a family game in my opinion as the questions are way too hard for children. It’s still a lot of fun though and we’ll definitely be playing it with friends.
