Let's Play With Miss Jocelyn!

Miss Jocelyn is wondering what board games we use for education. I love this idea, because when we started homeschooling we got games JUST for this purpose. So here are the games our kids enjoy:

Timmy who is 6 years old enjoys puzzles, any kind of match game and we have a few different ones. Fun with Sentence Structure, which really isn't a board game per say but sure is a fun way to learn. He likes Sorry, which teaches him patience ;O) and Monopoly Jr.

The girls have Pink Boutique Edition Monopoly, Scrabble, You can even play a Scrabble online version which is good practice. Then there's one of my favorites, Yahtzee! Apples to Apples Jr., and Mind Trap.

Now Mind Trap does have 'some' questionable scenarios regarding alcohol and smoking. So I pull those ones out.

And of course we have many online games and CD Roms too.

Mind Trap. I've got a couple of older kids who always want to play this game at family gatherings. To me, it takes too much thinking. I'd rather play Scrabble or Trivia Pursuit. But some folks really like Mind Trap, so much so that for a number of months I did a "Mind Trap" Monday on my blog so bloggers could try and figure out the answers. Most came pretty close. Smart folks, these homeschoolers. :-)
