    My kids are 5, 3, 1, and newborn. Can you talk about how to start teaching children to play games? Every time we’ve attemped to bring out candyland or something similar it has to be by the 5 yo rules and she has to win or she cries and makes it no fun for anyone. Any suggestions?

    LOVE Equate, Set and Quip. I used them in my classroom all the time. Set and Quip are awesome for when there are a few random minutes left in class. Set has an overhead version that is perfect for class play.

    It can be tough playing board games with younger children. We occasionally have to have conversations about being a gracious winner and an even better loser. Every so often we have to “ban” a player so that everyone else can have fun. Usually the “exiled player” {LOL} comes back with a better attitude and is able to play with the family again!
