Board Games Still Exist Two Classics for Kids to Play

Updated on May 26, 2009

I am fairly certain that at some point in time we have all questioned if the games that we played as kids were still around. If you are like that and have kids now you will have discovered with a great amount of happiness that the games that were fun when we were little still are around and they are just as fun. A great example is that my daughter got this past Christmas some of the games that my husband and I would spend hours playing as children.  The games that she recieved for Christmas were Candyland and Chutes and Ladders.  These games did manage to bring back many of my own fond childhood memories and reminded me that these games are great in sharing time with my kids as a family instead of constantly being away from each other because of the television and computers.


Now one of the first games that I did play with my daughter that she got was Candyland. This game is great in that it helps us as parents teach our children colors. Now I know that without this game I would still be working on the colors with my daughter, but since she is very competitive she learned almost all of the colors within the first week of playing so she wouldn't have to constantly ask me where to move her piece to.  So the educational benefit of this game is great for us as parents to help our kids learn.


Chutes and Ladders is a wonderful educational game as well for kids and for helping us as parents. While my daughter doesn't seem to like this game as much she has managed to learn how to count much higher than what she could before. Which is good because one of our friends sons challenged her to count to one hundred and now she has a task and goal at hand to get to one hundred in her counting. Which she loves this game because it will help her learn how to count that high. So this game will help your kids learn how to count much higher than what they could before she is now up to thirty with only missing one number in her teens.


The games that my daughter recieved this past year as Christmas presents are wondeful to play and are very educational.  These games have managed to help my husband and I teach her colors and numbers past ten so that she can start off school with a better education than what she had before.

      We still enjoy board games. About once a month we pull out Monopoly or Life and have a nice family night.
