Why we love board games
Learn to take turns
Waiting your turn can be tough for preschoolers and board games are a great way to help you become more patient. Make the wait less painful by playing co-operative board games where the players work together towards a common goal.
Young (and not-so-young!) children find losing hard. Learning to be generous in defeat takes time and practice. Give them plenty of opportunities with games that are quick to play so that everyone has a chance to win.
Find your favourite
Take a break from the traditional board-game format. You might find a style that's more enjoyable. The maths required for many traditional games puts them out of the reach of many preschoolers so why not try something new?
