Games and Cousins

We are a game playing family. Not like, ALL the time, but every once in a while we totally binge game play. One of the reasons that we don't play all the time is because of kids. They love to play with you and mess up all of your boards and game pieces, whatever game you play, there is always something for the kids to mess up. Which is sweet that they want to play with you, but also annoying because now you don't know which cards are yours or not. Anyways, we decided to get Charlie some fun games to play so that we could have game nights that he could partake in. I kind of got a little obsessed and constantly was looking up kids games that Charlie could play and would enjoy, and that I would enjoy too. We have tried some Candy Land and games like that but Charlie just doesn't have the attention span for that, but we did find some that he definitely enjoys playing and can play to the end. The first game we got was the Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game and it was a hit. Super simple but also pretty fun for kids (pretty boring for parents, but whatever). Then I discovered HABA games and I want to buy all of them! We decided to give Charlie games for presents instead of toys, because he doesn't need any more toys. For his birthday we got him Knuckling Knights Game and he absolutely loves it! He picks this one out the most and it is pretty enjoyable for both parties(this is the game in the pictures). The gameplay is simple but pretty exciting when the knights come tumbling out of the tower, plus he is introduced to rolling the dice. The game is marked for older kids, but as long as an adult is playing, younger kids can play it with no problem. He was also given The Little Orchard Game and this one is fun too. We lose a lot, but it's a cooperative game so we all lose together! We also got Spot It Junior but he's not really into that yet. HABA does have games for younger kids, like Pip's age, but we haven't gotten her any yet, but I have a few picked out for when we do.
Anyways, we now play games quite often with him and he really enjoys it. We also have our cousins over and bake things, it's another winter activity that I am very fond of :)
Pip still tries to play with us, but she's usually pacified with snacks
