Getting Ready for Spring: Make a Family Game Basket

When I think of spring I think of two things: spring cleaning and spring showers.  So right now seems like a great time to do some organizing and pull together a family game basket for rainy afternoons.

Said basket would also come in handy for Family Game Night – a tradition I’d love to get started around here now that the kids are getting old enough to enjoy the fun.

We already have a few favorite games of our own but I’m always on the lookout for more to keep S and C interested as they get older.  Plus a quality family game would be a great idea for the Easter basket.  A few days ago I asked our Facebook followers about their family favorites and they came up with a rather extensive list.

QUESTION OF THE DAY
