As a Mom of teens, finding ways to engage them is often challenging. They have social lives, can drive, and want to explore their new independence. Video gaming and social media add another complication to this as my boys often want to get online to join some sort of game party or whatever it is. This Boymom never says die, though, and we revert back to some of our old standards to keep the kids involved and enjoying a night in.
Enter GAME NIGHT! Fortunately, we raised our kiddos to enjoy playing board games and doing puzzles, but even if you feel you’ve missed your window, you may be surprised. AND since it’s the holidays (read: you are about to be stuck with your kids and no school for around ten days), I’m sharing our family’s favorites!
If you find yourself interested in any of the items shown, just click the photos to order! You could have them in time for break…
Ok, so we have a LOT of friends who also enjoy game night. This game is NOT for kids (well, ok, I’m sure they all play this game, but it is NOT for a mom to play with her sons perhaps ever). It is filthy, full of obscenities, and absolutely HYSTERICAL! Cocktails not required but certainly helpful.
And you may want to get yourself a copy of this, too….
Enjoy your holidays! What are some of YOUR favorite games to play?
