For me, the most important thing about this month of game exploration, is to keep it fun. I know that people can learn all sorts of skills and facts through game-playing. Sometimes we parents and teachers even strategically choose games, in order to teach some concept. But that’s sort of like hiding pureed veggies in the ice cream. Isn’t it all right to just eat ice cream?
Yes! It’s fine to scoop up a big bowl and enjoy it, just as it is. Of course, it’s metaphorical, so if you’re lactose-intolerant, no worries – just insert something else you find incredibly delicious or enjoyable into the analogy. And then, go have some fun!
What games bring you and your family the most joy? The most laughter?
