These Are The Top 5 Board Games To Play With Your Kids During Christmas

Published : December 30, 2019

Christmas is all about making memories. What better memory is there than playing board games while munching on popcorn and sipping hot cocoa with whipped cream on top? We’re here to tell you the cream of the board game crop this Christmas. Check out the top five board games to play with your kids during Christmas to make warm and toasty memories.


A race where you can actually bump your opponent out of your way, slide past them to finish first, and have a safety zone where no one can get you? Isn’t that every kid’s dream come true? Sorry is a game that lets your kiddos push their way to the top – well, their pawns get to push their way to the top, anyway.

Sorry offers the ability to play as individuals or teams, making it a great game to play for competition or for making sure a little one doesn’t feel sad because they didn’t win (team littles with a parent so they can learn and score at the same time). Sorry is for kids ages 6 and up.


Lollipops, gumdrops, peppermint sticks, and chocolate, oh my! No need to worry about cavities and tummy aches when you play Candyland with the kids. A simple game of matching your spot on the board to the color on a card you’ve drawn, even the littlest elves in your home can play this no-reading-required game.

Candyland might be a bit slow for you as parents, but your kids will love this sweet-as-sugar game. Perfect for ages 3-5, it’s also a great game to set the kids up on their own when you need to wrap a few gifts or bake some holiday treats.

Chutes and Ladders

If your munchkins love the slide at the playground, they just might lose this game where the object is to climb the ladders and avoid the slides. But they’ll learn quickly that their playground fave is a big no-no on the board if they want to be the first player to get to square #100.

With a simple play that only requires spinning a spinner and moving the number of spaces indicated, kids as little as 3 can play this game. It tends to be a fast play, too, so you’ll be able to play more than once – or play a few games if you’re making it a game night.

Sequence For Kids

All you need to do is match the picture on the card in your hand to the picture on the board, and get four in a row on the board. No reading, no math, and you can even use a DRAGON card to get a leg up on your opponent.

This game is perfect for kids ages 3-5.

Beat the Parents

If trivia’s your thing, your family will love this game that pits the kids against the parents with age-specific trivia. Do the kids know more than their parents? Or can the parents strut their stuff as they show the kids just how much they know about kid culture? The only way to find out is to challenge the kids to beat the parents!

Perfect for kids ages 6 and up, this game offers lively competition that gives kids or parents bragging rights for days.

It’s time to get your game on! Don’t have these games? Looking for others? Make sure you visit The Shops @Rockvale for all your Ho-ho-holiday shopping!
