Hey families everywhere! How about spending some quality time together playing games?

Let’s set aside the screens, notifications, social media, as well as video and online games, and enjoy some good old-fashioned face-to-face interaction. Embrace the real world!

There are countless possibilities and games to explore. Here are a few to get you started. Stay tuned for new game ideas every week

Family games ideas #1 - To know you better

We begin by proposing some games in which the protagonists will be yourselves.

They are fun quiz games about yourselves that will provoke very funny situations and at the same time will help you to get to know yourselves better.

You can play sitting comfortably in your favorite place in the house. Try it!

Family games ideas #2 - Playing with the senses

We are very excited to propose these games because our family had a lot of fun with them.

How about playing a game of the senses?. You can play with things you have at home.

These family games are great fun and at the same time can be educational for children to test their ability to distinguish smells and tastes.

On the other hand, that feeling of being blindfolded and having something put in your hands that you have no idea what it’s going to be… it’s a very different feeling from all the others.

The game of guessing by touch is more interesting because of how the children will react than because of the competition. Will they get nervous? Positive nerves or will they have a hard time? Usually there is positive excitement.

These are good game to share with family and children. Try it!

Family games ideas #3 - Skill games

And if you want family games with a little more action, you can try one of these skill games.

They are games of skill but do not require much physical activity.

If you have never played before, try them!

And if they are games you are familiar with, you can take them out of the closet and bring them back to the table.
