We love games around here. I come from a long line of avid game players. My grandfather showed no mercy when teaching us to play checkers, even at five years old. And you had better bring your A-game when sitting down to play any game with my mother. She likes to win and seldom walks away disappointed. We love cards; Gin rummy tournaments are a staple at every family reunion. Outdoor games like ladder golf and Kan Jam make appearances at all BBQs and holiday weekends. And, we are always on the hunt for the latest and greatest board games for kids and adults. Our current adult favorites are The Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride.
Games play such an important role in the lives of our extended families that my husband and I are eager to instill a love of games in our children. Family game nights have already begun. They are a welcomed way to bond as a family, sparking creativity and conversation that may have otherwise been lost in the mix of our typical bedtime routine.
EeBoo Games are some of my very favorite children’s games. My daughter received our first, the Fairytale Spinner Game, for her fourth birthday. I was so impressed with the high quality and simplicity of the game pieces. The box suggests ages 5+, but the rules are so straight-forward my daughter had no trouble following along. As we played, I was surprised by how quickly she understood and could identify simple story elements. After collecting five elements, each player is given the opportunity to create their own story. Each game is different as our imaginations create new storylines.
There are a great variety of EeBoo games and we have purchased many for our home and to gift, including: the Dancing Spinner Game, Build a Robot, Color Go Fish and Tell Me a Story Cards. Each game we’ve purchased has been of the same high quality and high sustainability (made from 90% recycled materials). My daughter has really enjoyed the Spinner games, as they allow each player to earn props needed to create their story. I am excited to purchase more of the Tell Me a Story card games to use this summer as my daughter begins journaling, on our road trips and even at the dinner table as conversation starters. There are many to choose from to suit your child’s interests, including: Little Robot’s Mission, Fairytale Mix Up, Mystery in the Forest, Volcano Island and Circus Animal Adventure.
I highly recommend EeBoo games to the primary teacher looking for new ways to engage students in new conversation and writing topics, as well as the mother looking for ways to encourage positive interactions while traveling, waiting for the doctor and/or modeling appropriate table talk. They are wonderful additions for your game closet.
Do you have any EeBoo games? If not, which ones would your kids be most excited to play with first?
