We don't have nearly as many games as we'd like yet but the ones that we have are indeed well loved. Some of our favorites are:
Uno. This was the girls first card game (and as you can see by the fact that Em's hair is super short these pictures are old). When we first started playing Uno with the girls we had to hold the cards for them but now they are able to play without much help from us. Such a great game for color and number matching!
Candy Land. Another tried and true favorite (and another old picture. This time from the October Nor'easter).
Balancing Moon. We bought this from Magic Cabin a couple years back. It's a simple game. All about color matching and balancing. It's great for the very young but also is just as much fun when your a mama (or older!)!
The Ladybug Game is simply fabulous! What makes it so fabulous is how simple it is. Since reading is not required kids can easily learn the rules and play on their own.
And we love to put our alphabet blocks to good use and play Alphabet Hide and Seek. A game that I made up one day when the girls had their Easter baskets out and were going on treasure hunts. Why not hunt letters? It was a blast! You can read more about it here.
If you have any games to recommend to us we'd love to hear about them. So far, as a result of a trip to the lovely toy store in Concord this week, and reading Stephanie's post we're looking forward to playing Blokus, Boggle Jr., Qwirkle, Mystery Garden, Math Animals and Mighty Mind. Can't wait to see what else we discover along the way!
