Favorite Old-Fashioned Board Games for Kids.
Playing board games with your Grandchildren can be loads of fun. Laughing is good for you. Let loose, be silly, and enjoy your time together.
Board games are perfect for a rainy day. Add some excitement by crawling into the tent or fort to play.

If you have the game, let your Grandchildren tell you the moves they want to make.
Aggravation is the classic marble race around a star shape, from base to home sweet home. It's always tempting to take a shortcut, but beware, someone may be out to get you!
Each player rolls the die and moves a marble around the board, choosing along the way whether to aggravate another player, take a shortcut (or super shortcut!), or just try to quietly slide by (good luck with that approach!).
RISK is a strategy board game of diplomacy, conflict, and conquest.
It is played on a board depicting a political map of the earth, divided into forty-two territories, grouped into six continents.
Players control armies of playing pieces and attempt to capture territories from other players.
A miss-step and you’re wiped out. Make the "right moves" and you'll conquer the world
The goal of the game is to occupy every territory on the board and in doing so, eliminate the other players
I never was very good at this game, but my husband loved it! I like to play games that don't take quite this level of concentration, but older Grandkids might love to challenge Grandpa to a game of RISK. Good Luck!
Made for 6 years and up, (butt I'll bet a 4-year-old would love it)!
I had to include this one. Do you know how many times a day a four-year-old boy says Poopyhead? This has to be the perfect game for him!
There are few things as fun as a good poop joke, especially when that poop is sitting on your Grandma or Grandpa's head! Poopyhead is a slapstick card game that will have everyone rolling with laughter as they try to avoid being the “poopyhead” with every turn.
If you are having a bad day, need a little or a lot of laughs, or just want to have a ton of fun, the minute you play Poopyhead, you'll be laughing your… errr... backside off!
What are your favorite board games to play with your Grandkids? Leave me a comment, please. I’m always looking for new ways to entertain my own Grands and would love to hear your suggestions!
Concentration (Memory Games - if you don't have specialty cards any deck of playing cards will do - just match numbers/face cards or for the little ones suits)
