Have you fond memories of playing board games with family and friends? Whether it was Saturday nights in, camping and caravan holidays or even when there was a power cut, the board games were always brought out for a bit of family fun - even by candlelight!
Fast forward 30 or 40 years and family fun time is very different! Heaven forbid if there's a power cut! The horror and panic in everyone's faces! NO XBox/Play Stations, NO TV and if phones or tablets are not charged - NO Candy Crush or Social Media. Total disaster!!
All this reliance on screen time to entertain is having a negative impact on your family's health. But by playing board games, you can:
- Help family cohesion
- Help reduce isolation
- Keep your brain younger for longer
- Help with children’s cognitive and social development
- Help reduce stress
