This month means birthdays in our household with my daughter turning six and several close friends celebrating their big day. The only thing Emma asked for this year was Mousetrap, a favorite game from my childhood! I happily bought it for her along with Hi, Ho, Cherry-O for Braden, Rummikub for Drew, and various other board games for the remainder of our party list. Peel away all of the trappings of modern family life and you’ll find that there’s still nothing like the time spent with those you love when you make Time to Play.
Join the Time to Play gang this Thursday night to celebrate Family Game Night! Spring is around the corner – I hope! – but with a chill still in the air and snow in the forecast, many families are looking for ways to spend quality time together indoors. From classics like Monopoly and Clue to new games like Uno Moo, family game night (FGN) is always fun and entertaining. Hosted by @JimSilver and @TheToyGuy along with me, @ResourcefulMom, the #TTPGameNight party is sure to bring back fond memories and inspire conversation about the new family traditions you have started with your kids. In addition to talking about which games are suitable for family play, preschoolers and more, guests will have the opportunity to win some great games. Family Game Night is a big initiative for Hasbro each year, and we’d like to thank them for sending the majority of the prizes. We’d also like to thank Mattel for providing prizes.
