According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), playing is serious business for a child’s health and development.
What if I told you that playing board games can help kids in both school and life?
Playing preschool-level board games may seem so simple on the surface. When you look closer at what’s going on, it’s providing teachable moments, improving social interaction and developing good social skills amidst all the fun!
Playing board games presents an opportunity to understand group dynamics, practice interpersonal skills, improve social skills, practice for specific social situations and develop the all-important skill of working well with others.
If you want to test drive some of these before buying them, many libraries have board games you can borrow for free, just like books!
