Benefits of Playing Games | Five Reasons to Have Family Game Night | Bible Time Fun

We love family game night! It's a time we can come together and have fun as a family! Not only is it fun, there are also several benefits of playing games with the kids. Here are five benefits of playing games with your children.

  1. Playing Games Promotes Family Time - In the busyness of life, it can be hard to find time to spend together. Playing games gives you a chance to enjoy each other’s company and have fun while doing it.

  2. Playing Games Helps Build Communication Skills - When you're playing games, you talk about the game, and conversations about broader topics often develop from there.

  3. Playing Games Teaches Children How to Follow Instructions - When children play games, they have to listen to instructions, digest them and then figure out what to do.

  4. Playing Games Encourages Healthy Competition - When you model good sportsmanship, your child learns to win and lose graciously, congratulate the winners and celebrate other players’ successes.

  5. Playing Games Encourages Problem Solving - Many board games are impossible to win without using problem solving skills. Planning their strategy helps children improve their problem-solving skills, which will benefit them in just about every area of life.

One of the recent games we played was "The Good Shepherd" by It was a great addition to our evening devotion, where we talked about Jesus being our Good Shepherd. The game was very simple to learn and it required some strategy, which I, and the girls love! I love because they have a large collection of FREE Bible Games for kids of all ages!
