We have put together our top 5 children’s games. This was a tough one, as we have so many awesome games designed for children available. However, we have finally put together a list that has something for everybody.
Children’s games can be any of the amusements and pastimes of a little one. This can be based on fantasy and imagination, or organised games with sets of rules. These can also be played with anyone – friends, family or individually. Similarly, can be played anywhere – there are many inside games and outside games to be played.
In the spirit of October 31st, our first favourite has to be Zombie Operation! Operation is a silly skill game, but this version has an extra bite! Grab your trusted tweezers and take a stroll through the neighbourhood where everyone is dying to meet you. Keep calm and decomposed to avoid triggering the buzzer. This game requires skill, patience, and dedication. Have you got the guts to play? It’s a no brainer! This is a perfect seasonal gift for Halloween but can be used all year round. If you are feeling brave!
This game is described as the eleFANTASTIC game of picking up donuts. We love this one as it is so crazy, and there are two ways of playing. In game 1, can you be the first elephant to get all your donuts on your trunk? And in the alternative game, can you pick up and place your donuts on your game board one at a time before your fellow elephants? Doh Nutters is a game best played with 2-4 players, so it is perfect for smaller playdates and rainy days inside with the family.
Next, is a children’s game by the beloved Orchard Toys. We struggled to decide here, as we have such a wide range of Orchard Toys to pick from. This time, we have chosen Alphabet Flashcards – the perfect tool to introduce children to the letters of the alphabet and first words in a fun way. The cards are double-sided, featuring a colourful, friendly illustration of the word on one side and the letter of the alphabet on the other. With 26 cards in a pack, let the literacy and fun begin all in one.
Hamster Race is the cheese chasing, hamster racing game we all want and need! To play, line up your hamsters on the starting grid. Next, roll the dice and you’re off! Go racing around the track, picking up cheese and aim towards riding hamster wheel. The last one standing wins all the cheese in their mouth, and the player with the most cheese at the end of 3 rounds wins.
Finally, we have chosen another Orchards Toy game. As we said, it was so hard picking just one! This choice is also an educational activity puzzle, but this time is working on numeracy skills. Make learning from 1 to 20 fun by matching the simple picture cards with the numbers. There is no tricking this clever puzzle, as only the correct cards will fit together! This allows your child to also learn about self-correct as they have puzzle fun.
