1. Great for all ages

Game night creates an equal opportunity for all ages and abilities to have fun together. Lots of games have versions that are age-appropriate and in fact are designed to be multigenerational. As your children get older, look for different versions with for older children. 

2. Fun

Not only is your family brought together, now you get to share an activity that is not very serious. You get to interact in a lighthearted way but have enough fun to keep everyone at your game table. It's ok to be not always serious.

3. Inexpensive

Games are cheap. Well many of them are. You can spend anywhere from $2 to $50 on a game. Grab a deck of cards and get started or pick up a game the next time you are at your local store. Or start with your free I Spy Game from KFC.

4. See your child react socially

As parents, we get to see our children go through many social processes while game playing. You can see how losing and winning affect your child. You get to watch your child formulate their thought processes during a game and see how they make decisions.

“This awareness offers the parent an ability to see where their kids are cognitively and socially, and is a great way to promote good sportsmanship and improve social skills.” ~ Sherman Stovall Jr., therapist at Vitality Physicians Group Practice

5. Fits your family needs

Need a laugh out loud night where everyone can be silly? There is a game for that! Get competitive with something like UNO or play other games where family members get to answer questions about themselves. The beauty of game night is that you can pick the games to meet your family needs.

6. Educational

The hidden educational impact of games is something that really excites me about family game night. Besides being together children are learning and practicing skills like counting or strategy. They have to think and formulate plans in some games.

You can now make Game Night a weekly routine and now KFC can help you make it happen! So put down the phones, tablets and other electronics and get ready to socialize with your family! Bring game night back.
