Now that the cold is settling in it is time to bring out the games! I have 2 great ideas for you from Continuum Games. They have family friendly games as well as seasonal games.
The first game is Family Talk2, a big hit around here. It is a fun and portable way to get your family talking. I have a 4 year old who LOVES to share what is on his mind and we love to hear what he is thinking, this is just a perfect way to get beyond the every day questions of how was school and what did you do at your friends home.
Family Talk2 includes 100 conversation cards that range from "where did your parents go on their honeymoon?" to "who is the best joke teller in your family?" to "what is the scariest thing that has ever happened to you?" Some of the questions were a little over my 4 year old's head but they were easy to skip over or adjust the question for his age. I am sure this will be a game we will use for a long time in our family.
The second game is Lumps, the Elf Coal Game, which is perfect for this time of year! The Lumps Legend begins when children around the world have been so good the past few years that the coal in the North Pole is piling up. Puzzled by what to do, the Elves created a new game that uses the lumps of coal, which come in all different shapes and sizes.
The game is played by rolling the dice, and adding the points. You try and score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. If you roll a pair of 2's, you score 2 points or if you roll a pair of 10's, you score 10 points. However, if you roll 3 5's you score 10, (the first pair count as 1, and if a third or more dice is rolled you add each additional dice.) A really fun and easily played game for our family. Again, my 4 year old loved it, mainly just because he could roll his dice over and over again, we did the counting for him. My husband who isn't too into games even played it 2 nights in a row with us. It comes in a cute little stocking, which travels easy and makes it even more festive!
Lumps, the Elf Coal game is available at Hallmark Gold Crown Stores, Books-A-Million, Go! Games, and 100's of specialty toy stores in the US. Or along with Family Talk2 you can purchase the games at Continuumgames.com and also get a 15% discount by using the code: funforallages.
