I wouldn’t say that I am a competitive person when it comes to sports, but I love to play board games and other games with family and friends. My specialty is playing Taboo, and charades comes in at a close second. Some of my best memories with friends are centered around the goofy times we had playing games which are now inside jokes that we laugh about years later. Now that my daughter Cami is 3, she and I have enjoyed playing games together. For her birthday she received Candy Land and that was a game changer. I love playing with her as she counts the squares and bounces her game piece from color to color. A girl after my own heart. Of course when I discovered her love of games, I immediately was on the hunt for more games that we could enjoy together.
You know. You have no idea what is out there until you are in that stage of life to start looking for it. I had no idea there were so many toddler friendly games out there until I started looking! And you know what, not only are they fun for toddlers but I actually enjoy playing them with my toddler. The best part is how excited my daughter gets when she advances. Oh to see the world through a child’s eyes! With Christmas around the corner, check out this list of games for your toddler and give the gift of family engagement and fun this year!
