More Summer Must-Haves! Fun & Games for the Kids!

.Summer is still here and hasn’t ended yet! Here are some more of my favorite products for this season!

Solid Wood Chess – Checkmate! Featuring an attractive game board with the familiar checkerboard pattern accompanied by gorgeous wood sculpted game pieces for everyday and anywhere play. Ages 8+

Solid Wood Checkers – King me! Classic board game that has captivated generations of players, this easy to learn and play game furnishes players with everything they need to capture the enemy and crown their kings. Ages 6+. I love how beautiful the game actually is! I received a sample of the Solid Wood Checkers and this would make a great gift!

Both of these games would be great for travel this Summer and also for those days at home when the kids starting saying they are bored!

The older kids will love this next one!

This card game is fun for families with kids 13 years old and older! There is 200 PG-13 friendly (but pretty awful) stuff happens event cards. Yes, there is some messed up stuff on the cards and the idea is to rank them based on how bad they really are. This one is for 2 or more players and would be a hit to take on summer travel with older kids! I find that it is sometimes difficult to find games for kids in this age range and this one is a must! Can only be found at Walmart! Find out more here!
