Welcome to my “12 Days of Christmas” series. Come join me each day as I share with you my Twelve Days of Christmas—-BOARDGAMES Edition!!! Each day I will be highlighting boardgames for you all! First let’s talk about why boardgames are a MUST for every family. 🙂
- Kids NEED to spend time with you– A child wants/needs/craves spending time with you. Quality time where you can talk and connect. Times without judgement and just fun interaction. When you set aside time to play a board game with your child, you’re making memories and moments that will last a lifetime.
- Educational!!! As a Homeschool mom THIS is huge! I love being able to take fun times of bonding and also make them educational! So many skills are learned from board games from social to intellectual! Some of those include letter recognition, number recognition, color recognition, visual perception, hand-eye coordination, dexterity, strategy, taking turns, learning to lose gracefully and much much more!
As a homeschool mom of 3 very different personality boys, I am so thankful for our family game nights. I can hardly wait until hubby comes back to join in our family game nights again! This is one way that we use to connect boys who are so very different, as well as mom and dad. So I hope you come back each day and join us as we share our top picks!!!
On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…..TICKET TO RIDE
The Ticket To Ride board game is a cross-country train adventure that celebrates Fogg’s impetuous and lucrative gamble to travel “Around the World in 80 Days” by proposing a new wager. The stake is a $1 million prize in this winner-takes-all competition. The objective of this train board game is to see who can travel by rail to the most cities in North America in just seven days. The Ticket To Ride game can be played by two to five players. There are 225 colored train cars and players have to collect cards that allow them to use the different railway routes connecting the cities across the USA. Ticket To Ride board game comes complete with a detailed board, game cards, help cards, rules, train miniatures and more. One thing that is so special about this particular game, it is a wonderful choice for adults as well as kids.
Here is a great video review:
This would make a wonderful Christmas gift! Enjoy!!!
