With childhood comes the need to play. Like mom, I'm always looking for games that can excite me as much as my child when I play with him. Here are 5 of my favorites.
Tekitoua by Janod
I played a similar game when I was little, but with adult faces, does that mean anything to you? Tékitoua is a game of association, elimination, deduction and it is excellent for learning to formulate questions. With really funny images of animals with glasses, with headphones and funny hats, the child must discover which animal his opponent has picked.
- "Is your pet a cat?" »
The child can therefore cross out the cats on the map with his washable pencil since it is definitely not a cat! The game is funny, current and will develop the strategy of children and adults alike!

Smart Game Day and Night
Here is a game that has been following us for several years at home. This is a reproduction game offered in the form of challenges. The child must observe carefully and recreate what he sees on a real image usingblocks and a wooden support. It develops a lot of logic (should I put this piece on before or after?). Once he has completed all 24 challenges, he can turn over his cards and take on an even greater challenge, that of recreating the shadows with the same blocks without the color in the image. It is therefore a very progressive game that always keeps the child's interest and makes him want to surpass himself.

Little Cooperation by Djeco
When my boys are having a tougher day and they have trouble getting along, I always take out Little Cooperation. It's simple, everyone wins, or everyone loses, it's teamwork! So no crying if one or the other doesn't come out a winner… I've needed a game like this in my closet for a long time. The goal: save the animals by making them cross the bridge before it melts. The die decides and the animals must all be saved to win. The perfect game to introduce the little ones to the notion of losing or winning while rallying the older ones who have so much fun. Little extra, the little animals are very cute and make children want to play.

Bingo Tourismo de Janod
No matter how long or short you drive, you'll love Bingo Tourismo. With a washable bingo-style card and marker, you'll need to be mindful ofeverything you come across on the road (a church, a gas station, a horse, a dog). As soon as you come across an illustration on your card, you will be closer to a full card! You have the option of playing four people at once and I'm sure you'll play as well as they do because the time flies so much faster while playing!

Here are treats that do not cause cavities, but which greatly develop the child's speed and observation. It's a bit like Seek and Find, but where you'll need to have Formula 1 vision to find the right colors first. A player rolls the three dice and it is the first participant who finds the candy containing these three same colors who keeps it. Your goal is simple, collect the most treats to win. Now is not the time to watch the flies fly, you have to concentrate and be very attentive to the thrower.

I strongly advise you when you like a game from a collection to snoop on the other possibilities that the creators offer you. You will probably find other favorites there for now or for later and you will already have ideas in the bank when your family asks you: “Make me a list for Christmas or for his party”. It's often times like these that we don't know what to say. I likemake myself a small list of ideas in advance, this way I can better target the play needs of my children according to the age and the interest they have. On that… have fun!
