During the that is the holidays, sometimes you just need a chance to recharge your batteries. And after all that shopping, gift-wrapping, cooking, baking, crowded malls, crowded aiports and cranky kids…you need a chance to sit back with a cup of hot cocoa while your kids keep themselves busy. We’ve compiled a list of kids games for Christmas to keep the youngins entertained.
Here are 6 fun kids games for Christmas
1. Santa Tracker apps – There are quite a variety of these available for download on iTunes and most of them are FREE. Last year, my kids were entranced with this app which told them exactly where Santa was on his route. They would check it constantly and tell me, “Santa’s in Great Britain now!” Really adorable, really entertaining.
2. – This modern-day take on charades will keep kids occupied while exercising their creativity. My kids and their friends love this game.
3. – Yesterday I was in Toys R Us and I asked a sales associate what she thought the “hot” games were. She recommended Connect 4 Launchers. At only $9.85, we can get behind that recommendation. .
4. – I also saw this yesterday at Toys R Us and thought it looked adorable. Everyone loves the classic Memory Game, and everyone loves minions. It’s $6.99 at Toys R Us, but only $5.99 on Amazon. .
5. – I went to another expert for advice on games – my son. He, his sister and their friends are addicted to this game which has been described as “frustratingly wonderful.” There are different levels to satisfy various ages. Start with the FREE Lite Version. An upgrade is only $1.99 and well worth it. .
6. – This app is another hit with my kids. While the name of the app sounds violent, you’re only smashing glass objects. This game requires focus, concentration and timing. .
