Kenzie and I have been playing games a lot lately. We started with Hyper Slide, moved on to Rummikub, and last played Jenga. We also threw in some Othello, Mancala, and Candy Land (with Johnny). I never was a sit-down-and-play-games type person. I enjoy them when I do, but it never was something I was overly interested in doing. But, I have had a lot of fun with Kenzie over the last week playing different games.
I need your help though. I am unsure what other games to get. I need to buy a new Uno deck because I know some of our cards are missing. Same with SkipBo. We also have The Game of Life but haven’t broken into that one yet. What other games are appropriate and fun for a 9 year old girl to play?
I have also started to teach her to knit. Problem? I taught myself and it is hard to teach someone else when you never were taught yourself. I am trying to teach her the long tail cast-on and she is having trouble. I am going to have to research other ways to cast on and teach her another way. Like I said, I taught myself so I only know one way!
Do you play games with your kids? I have never played games with adults but I hear a lot of people get together for game night and things like that. Fun!
