A lot of parents would rather gift their children toys or video games for their birthdays than explore other options. Well, it is a good idea because children love these things.
However, you can change the routine this year and give your child something different that they will appreciate for a long time.
Board games are very good both for children and adults because they help you think and challenge you.
I have put together 7 wonderful board games that your children between the ages of 3 to 10 would find quite interesting to play with, so why not read further and see which of them suits your child’s personality best?
1. Robot turtles game
As we already know, programmers are beginning to change the world one line of code at a time.
If you want your child or children to be one of those people who write codes to make life easier for everyone on this planet, then you should consider buying the robot turtle games for your child’s next birthday.
This game is the perfect choice for your little programmer to engage in when they have free time. it is an easy and interesting way to teach your kids how to code.
The robot turtle game is designed to teach children the basics of coding silently; it begins from teaching them from coding to functions while adding an interesting touch of sea turtle noises.
Before you settle down enough to figure out what the positivity of this board game is, you would notice your little one already writing wonderful lines of codes and creating games instead of just playing one.
This is one of the board games that helps your child to develop an interest in programming and also improve their problem-solving abilities and encourages logistic development. So if your child is four years and older, get them this game for their next birthday or any other special occasion.
2. Chinese checkers
I’m pretty sure you must have either played or come across chinese checkers while you were growing up it is interesting to know that this game still remains a favourite even now.
For your kids next birthday or even for Christmas why not gift them this wonderful game of Chinese checker?
A lot of people call this a brain twister game and I totally agree with them. the reason chinese checkers is considered a brain twister is that the more an individual plays it, the more they get enhanced brain-wise and their IQ increases.
Children above five years of age enjoy playing this lovely game. The players involved are required to move their pieces from one end of the game board to the other before their opponent does so.
3. Hoot Owl Hoot
Hoot Owl Hoot is a very famous award-winning game. it is safe to refer to it as a colour coded co-operative matching game that requires players to play for helping the owls fly back to reach their nests before the sun rises.
To get one step closer to sunrise time each player will need to pick the sun card. the players need to have a target to help all the earth in the game reach its home before its time for one of them to win. The game comes with a card deck of 53, and the cards include 36 coloured ones.
Among the cards, there are six cards each that come in 6 colours alongside 14 sun cards. The game begins very easy but gets more challenging as more owls are added to the track. this is 1 board game that is perfect if you have children between the ages of 5 to 10 years.
4. The clue game
As a growing child, I loved to read mystery books, and I sometimes went as far as creating my own mystery scenes in my bedroom.
If you have a child who is like that and you want to create a mystery play environment for them, then this is the right game for you.
Clue is a mystery game that requires a minimum of three players and a maximum of 6 players. this board game was designed by Birmingham’s Mr Anthony E Pratt, and it is again full of fun. this game requires the players to search for the real killer.
The killers in the game are different according to the different murders and it is the duty of the players to figure out who the real murderers are (more like playing the role of a detective).
In the game, the player needs to find out three significant clues that would lead them to the murderer. The three clues are: who the murderer is, where the murder took place, and what weapon was used for the murder.
As you can already tell from all, I have written so far the game would help your little detective think and there is no way your child will not want to play this game with you whenever you are free or even play it with friends whenever they are around.
This board game is perfect for children between the ages of 9 and older.
A lot of parents will sing that shares is a game strictly for adults but trust me; your children would enjoy playing the game of chess.
There are hundreds of reasons why it is good to encourage your kids to start learning how to play chess regardless of how young they are.
Chess is a strategy game, and you can even create a career for your child in the future as a professional chess player.
The players are required to make strategic movements using the chess pieces to get their opponent to a checkmate position. chess is an excellent game for children 10 years and above.
