There's nothing quite like playing a game. But for kids it's more than simply a way to let off steam and have a great time, it's also a valuable way to learn about their world and how to get along with the people in it. From babies onwards, children love to share in the excitement and fun, while also picking up new skills, such as working out how to deal with the consequences of making mistakes, or even bending the rules!

All the games included can be played with children and adults and the main objective is to have fun!
