In these strange and uncertain times, family comes first. Staying at home with your little ones is important for their health and yours, but it means needing to get creative to keep everyone engaged. Trying out some of these fun games to play at home with the kids will help you ensure that everyone is smiling at the end of the day.
Get a new (or classic) board game
Nothing quite says family fun and togetherness like a board game, and since the medium is in something of a renaissance at the moment, you have a ton to choose from. The editors at New York Magazine’s “The Strategist”have assembled a whole list of great games perfect for kids that includes classics like Connect 4 and Guess Who as well as newer favorites like Catan and Ticket to Ride.
Try out a video game
Whether you grew up on video games or have never tried them in your life, gaming with your kid is a great way to bond (and show your little people that you’re hip and with it). CNETrecommends a wide range of easy-to-find and kid-friendly video games for all different consoles and devices. If you have your old console up in the attic, now might also be a great time to break it out and show your kid old-school cool.
Bring back an old favorite
With the weather starting to get nice in Dixon, going outside and enjoying the sunshine might be good for everyone. Take advantage of a clear, sunny afternoon with a game of catch, horse, hopscotch, jump rope, or whatever activities your kids are into. On a rainy day, you can break out a classic like hide and seek, Simon says, or hot potato.
