Holidays are a time for family, food and fun. When I asked my 5-year-old son what is favourite part about Christmas was, he said “the games mama”. It’s about long leisurely meals with lots of hearty fun afterward. Well, it was and is for me anyway.
I agree with my son, my favourite part of family holidays is always the afternoon or “after meal” games. The boys are getting to the age now that they have started to grasp a lot of board games (well at least they think they do). Almost every week they will drag out the entire monopoly set to play ( I think its more about them getting all the money to be honest), but its creating memories, and its bonding. It also instills a little bit of healthy competition 🙂 Snakes and Ladders is one of the best entry points as a board game for kids, its easy to comprehend and my boys are really enjoying it at the moment.
Heres a list of some of our other favourite games:
From Top Left to Right:
Mouse Trap from Prima Games. this variation is available from R199 Makro
Snakes and Ladders is the perfect introduction to board games R91 from Takealot
Monopoloy has long been a family favourite. My sister and I would play one game that would last the entire weekend! R399 from CNA
Its Junior Scrabble for us, as the boys are still learning letters, and when we are tired mum and dad’s vocabulary is not too hot either. R399 from Takealot
Pictionary is a hoot in our house! Trying to figure out what the boys have drawn sometimes requires a teeny bit of imagination.
30 Seconds – This doesn’t need much explanation. Except, my team ALWAYS wins @ R249 from Takealot.com
Uno Cards are the perfect entry kit into the world of group games. R89.90 from CNA
Pie in your Face – We got this a few months ago, if you have seen my insta stories it is an absolute blast! My boys are suckers for punishment 🙂 (Or they really like licking cream off their faces) R459 from Takealot
Last but certainly not least one of our absolute trending favourites is Boom Blast Stix. Think of a combination of pick up sticks meets Jenga. The aim is to pile your clips as high as you can without them snapping and flying everywhere! This had an entire room full of adults in stitches of laughter earlier this year! R319 from Takealot
