Board games are great: They promote family bonding, get people to put down their screens for a second, and, sometimes, they sneakily let children practice some sort of skill, be it pattern recognition, matching, logic reasoning or hand-eye coordination. Of course, none of that would matter if they weren’t also fun.

These board games for kids were tested by the Good Housekeeping Institute‘s Little Lab, and all came back with raves from both players and parents. Whether you have a toddler or a big kid at home, they’ve found games that are simple to play, easy to clean up and fun for the whole family.
