Board games don't need to be overly academic to be great learning opportunities.
In the Ladybug Flower Tower Game, young children must use their fine motor skills to place the ladybugs in the tower without knocking it over. Eye-hand coordination and manual dexterity are challenged.
Keeping the ladybugs balanced, avoiding a tumbling tower provides simple lessons in sequencing and the physics of balance.
There are simple lessons in color and shape recognition which require visual perception.
Your child will develop more social skills and relationship building such as communicating verbally, sharing, waiting, taking turns, and enjoying interaction with others.
Board games can foster the ability to focus, and lengthen your child's attention span by encouraging the completion of an exciting, enjoyable game.
There are important life messages in playing games: Your luck can change in an instant -- for better or worse, but don't give up. If you're feeling blue because you're behind, you might ascend again if you stay in the game.
Games have rules or boundaries. The rules reign in the wild and excited side of children to help bring more organized, thoughtful behavior that is socially acceptable. Boundaries (not intruding on others' space, for example) is crucial to leading a successful social and academic life.
Note to adults:
Choosing the right game is critical. Cooperative play is always a good focus, but 3, 4 and 5 year-olds often need to win to feel mastery in their skills. We believe parents should help set-up the game so that children can win, often. By the time a child reaches 6 or 7-years old, they have the developmental capacity to begin internalizing the rules of fair play. Our advice is to adjust the atmosphere to your child's developmental needs.
