Board Games

Any game that involves counting money or using dice helps build number skills. These classics will encourage your child to become a math whiz!

Monopoly

Ages: Depends on edition; some target kids as young as 4

This board game has been around since 1935. It pits players against each other to make wise deals to buy up properties to win the game. Today there are several versions, from the classic (ages 8-plus) to Monopoly Despicable Me 2 (4 and up).

Yahtzee

Ages: Depends on edition; some target kids as young as 4

By rolling five die, players rack up points. After several rounds, the player with the most wins. Try the classic edition (ages 8 and up), SpongeBob SquarePants Yahtzee Jr. (ages 4 and up) – and themes like Spider-Man, Glee, Disney Princess and more.

Rummikub

Ages: Depends on edition; some target kids as young as 4

By making lines of ascending, descending or matching numbers with their stack of number tiles, players try to get rid of their entire pile. Two to four can participate using 106 number tiles. The classic edition is for kids ages 8 and up; Disney Rummikub and Rummikub Start Right start at age 4.

Connect Four

Ages: 7 and up

Ready to make some noise? With Connect Four, two players compete to – you guessed it – connect four of their game pieces. The upright board is open enough for players to slip in their game pieces – either red or black checkers. It's almost like playing tic-tac-toe in the air.
