What do young kids learn from playing games?
Q: What are the benefits of games for kids in the early years of childhood?
A: Games help children think strategically, solve problems creatively and develop social skills, such as following rules, playing with others and taking turns. Children love to play all kinds of games—board games, card games, computer games, console games, outdoor games—and often make up their own, or their own rules to familiar games.

Many children’s games also incorporate specific learning skills involving numbers, colours, shapes or letters. Last but not least, playing games is a wonderful opportunity for family bonding and tradition building.
