The Benefits of Playing Board Games for Kids!
Whether it is an after-school program, a summer camp, day care, or any other place a bunch of kids have free time, board games are great way for kids to have fun and learn various skills along the way! So, shutoff the WiFi, take out the AirPods, put the tablets and phones away and get your group playing games! Some of the benefits are highlighted below.
Whether it is the latest version of Candy Crush, Fortnite, or Clash of Clans, just about everyone plays games on their phone and or online. While these games can be entertaining (perhaps even addicting!), they tend to be isolating. Multi-player board games require kids to learn to interact with one another. Communication, reading, cooperation, and even reading body language are key components to many games.
Building Friendships and Bonds
Games are a great way to bring kids together. Playing a game is an easy way for kids who don’t know each other to interact and converse. After playing a game together kids will have a common bond to build upon for future interactions.
Games offer tons of opportunities for learning life skills like patience, waiting your turn, following rules, staying seated, working as a team, negotiating, and of course how to be a graceful winner or loser!
A Business Insider article stated “Games have been found to change the brain structurally and functionally, according to many scientific studies. They can promote neurogenesis — the growth of new neurons in the brain. They can also promote neuroplasticity — changes in neural pathways and synapses that lead to structural changes in the brain. These changes result in new brain cells and better connectivity among the different brain regions, thus enhancing mental skills such as memory, attention span, spatial intelligence, language learning ability, and coordination.”
Having fun while playing a board game can be a great way to take a kid's mind off any trouble they might be having at home, in school, or elsewhere.
Many games require and help build a variety of skills like counting (Sorry, Trouble, Mancala), deductive reasoning, and logic (Clue, Battleship, Mastermind, Guess Who, Hedbanz, chess, Chinese Checkers, Blokus, Risk, Connect 4), math (any game with money like Monopoly, Life, Payday), spelling (Boggle, Super Boggle, Scrabble, Bananagrams), and even basic engineering (Jenga, Super Tumbling Timbers, Kerplunk, Mousetrap).
