Trading card games have been huge in the playground for several years now. The combination of tactics, negotiation, combat and teamwork makes these games compelling and the fact that many are based on favourite cartoons keeps kids engaged.
Traditional board games should never be overlooked when it comes to keeping kids entertained. Alongside old classics like Monopoly there are all kinds of new, exciting and highly immersive board games, some of which pit you against other players and others that require you to all work together to beat the game. Alongside children’s puzzles, board games are some of the most enjoyable activities for kids to do indoors and make a welcome break from the computer.
Video games are popular for good reason. The modern generation of games consoles like the Xbox One and PS4 provide astonishing graphics and immersive gameplay for all ages and can be equally social once you factor in multiplayer and online gaming.
