Playing board games not only brings the family together creating memories to be cherished but teaches many valuable skills, academically and socially.  We introduced our first "board game when my son was a little over 3 years old and it was Candyland.  It brought back so many fond flashbacks from my own childhood.  It was amazing how quickly my son picked up on the concept of getting first to the candy castle.  Now at age four, he is really into games and it is so much fun to play with him.  He received Zingo by ThinkFun for his birthday and it was an instant hit.  Some of our other favorites include Memory (There are so many versions to choose from so pick a theme your child likes.  Be sure to start with just a few cards/matches and add more as your child becomes more confident and is ready for a challenge) and Hi-Ho Cherry-O by Hasbro.

What are your some of your favorite games to play with your kids?
