5 Fantastic Games for Families: PreK through Grade 2

Spending time together as a family is such an important thing to do, especially in this day and age when family time can be so limited and fractured.  It’s a great way for families to connect, to get to know one another and for adults to model good social skills for the kids.  Kids who have a hard time connecting socially benefit from learning how to play games, how to set them up and how to manage winning and losing in a gracious way. Our family loves to play games whenever we get a chance (which is almost daily), and we’re really enjoying them, so I thought it would be a good idea to blog about 5 more family games.  I wrote this blog post a few months ago about family games for older kids, these games are aimed at preschool and early elementary school aged children.
