For my son’s third birthday, a number of people bought him board games. At first, I was skeptical that he would sit still long enough and be able to follow the directions. I was totally wrong. Game time is fast becoming one of our favorite activities. Don’t get me wrong, there is a ridiculous amount of cheating. But the more we practice, the better he gets. So if you are looking for a good gift for a three or four year old or some new activities for your toddlers, check out some of our new favorite board games. With the cold weather fast approaching, this is a great mess-free activity when you can’t get outside.
