As an adult we seem to get caught up in the daily grind. Between work, school, kids events and the endless things to do before going to bed each night then having to get up to do it all over again the next day. A lot of us forget the small things or just think we lack the time for rest, relaxation and a little fun.
As a child I would spend countless hours playing games inside or outside. I don't ever remember a time that I was truly bored. If it was nice we would be outside from just after breakfast until the first street light came on and if we were lucky we would get 20 extra minutes to play ghosts in the graveyard or flashlight tag with the neighborhood kids before we were called in for the night. On the days that we couldn't get outdoors we would head to my house to raid the game closet. Back then we would play Trouble, Sorry, Life, and an array of card games like Uno and War.
I think that's why as an adult I still am fascinated with them and find myself making time at least once a week to play one. My favorites now being Cribbage and Monopoly, once in a while we will dust off the Trouble box.
All games promote some type of learning. They teach us everything from counting to letter recognition at a young age, to social and strategy skills when older.
Here at the Learning Shop we carry a wide array of games that will put the fun back in learning and give you some much needed family time in this fast paced world. I like to think that we have the ULTIMATE RAINY DAY GAME CLOSET. We are here to help you find that perfect game for whatever your needs may be.
