I am blessed that I have my family to look after the kids when we are handful at the shop once a while. Sometimes I get my dad to pick up the kids from baby sitter's house if I am not free in the evening to do so. How would I cope without my family?
Yesterday my sister bought some board games to entertain the kids at home. I was surprised that she went to get those aeroplane game and snake & ladder game boards. Well, we played those game boards when we were small, so it would be good to teach this new generation on what we played as a child, her reasoning. I like her idea!
I am sure most of you played more than one board games when you were kids. It was past time activity besides tv watching.
Now you see, kids nowadays seldom exposed to real board games and mostly play computer and online games. Correct me if I were wrong. My kids are more high-tech than me. My girl will able to browse through the Yahoo! games and find the games that she wants to play! At her age, I did not have computers and we mostly played pretending games (such as cooking, teacher and students etc) and board games. I remember as a kid, me and siblings had a set of few board games such as monopoly, chess, Chinese chess, aeroplane games, S&L and more. It was fun!
My girl was full of questions when I told her yesterday morning that her aunt bought some game boards for her to play in the evening. Why we go down when touch the snake head? How we move up the ladder etc? I think she was thinking that the pieces will move up and down by themselves! Lol!
So hopefully my children would not lose out on those excitement and fun. And thanks sis for introducing our childhood games to my children! My girl has been nagging me to bring her to grandparents' house today to continue the games! *wink*
