Board games are a classic family night activity. With everyone on the go, some families tend to lose sight of the importance of quality family time. Also, with the introduction of the rapidly evolving technology, more and more families are spending their quality time behind screens rather than in front of their actual family. That’s why everyone at our Orlando private school wants to see families bring back family board game night! Playing board games with your family brings a real family intimacy that you cannot achieve with online or digital games.
While we are making the rally cry to bring back board games, did you know that there are several benefits your family will reap when they start to embrace this quality time platform? Let’s explore some of these benefits.
- Building a Family Bond: It’s definitely a well-known fact that playing games together as a family will enhance family closeness. If you want to get to know the intimate details of your family members’ personalities, then having a family game night is going to be a success.
- Improving Social Skills: Typically, when a group of people play games together, they learn throughout the game how to effectively communicate with the other players. It can also teach ever-important qualities like sharing and patience. Also, your family members might shine a light on some hidden talents they have been hiding that you weren’t aware of.
- Improve Number Skills: If your child needs some work in the math or numbers area, board games might help solve this issue! At least one study has shown that children from low-income homes can understand numbers and math better from playing board games similar to Chutes and Ladders. The counting of spaces in that particular game can help improve counting skills
At Lake Forrest Prep, we definitely encourage fun family nights that include learning and education. To learn more about our Orlando private school, visit our website, or call us at 407-331-5144.
