The Top Games For Kids In 2016

Looking for the top games for kids in 2016? There’s no better time than to get those shopping lists figured out now that the holiday season is upon us. One of the biggest pass times for many children these days is playing games of course. Here are some of the top newer releases you should consider.

1 – Angry Birds Action!

If your little one has any sort of mobile device with iOS or Android installed, you can get Angry Birds Action! for them for just a nominal fee. This is the latest entry in the now 6 year running world famous franchise. This particular version of the game is top down, presented in more of a pinball format that switches things up nicely if the traditional platforming style has become stale.

2 – Skylanders Imaginators

As the leading franchise of the “games to life” phenomenon, Skylanders hasn’t slowed down a bit. Each new character released always becomes a collector’s item, so you have to move fast. Imaginators is the newest game in the series, bringing the ability for your kids to create their own Skylanders creatures. Whatever they happen to come up with can be scanned into and then played within the game. It can be a bit expensive since you have to purchase additional units beyond the game’s initial price, but it has proven immensely popular with kids time and time again. One of my son’s friend’s Dads writes for Twin Cities Fun and he says that this game is becoming hugely popular and could prove to be the best selling game of the year when all is said and done.

3 – Pokemon Sun & Moon

There’s no doubt that the much anticipated new iteration of Pokemon is also one of the top games for kids in 2016. If your child has a Nintendo 3DS handheld game system, this is absolutely the go-to title to grab this holiday season. Of course, Sun & Moon brings a whole new stable of Pokemon creatures to the table, and the collecting and battling RPG styled gameplay is as riveting as ever.

4 – LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Continue reading The Top Games For Kids In 2016

Take any game you like that uses pieces, and replace the pieces with wrapped chocolates instead. You could let each child eat their piece at the end of the game, or give all of the pieces to the winner.

Using Chocolate as a Reward
Any game can be more interesting when there’s a special prize waiting at the end of it! If there’s something you’d like your child to try that they’re not interested in, try offering up their favorite chocolate bar as a reward. There’s a good chance that they’ll be a lot more excited.

Give Your Favorite Game a Chocolate Makeover
Love Monopoly? Why not pretend all of the buildings are types of chocolate instead? Like playing checkers? Why not give it a few, fun, chocolate-themed name? It’s easy to put a candy spin on almost any board or card game, and for the right kid, it can make things a lot more fun.

Thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Maria and I have 3 wonderful children that love playing games. All the time, they are playing games in the house, outside, even in the car. One day we had chocolate ice cream and my little one Javier asked if there were any games involving chocolate. These kids!

I also love chocolate, I confess. I am trying to write more, and a co-worker recommended that I put up a blog. So here I am, and I hope you like my writing about chocolate games. Enjoy!
