When I was little I always got at least one board game for Christmas and loved playing them especially over Christmas, with my Parents, Brother, Cousins and friends.. I decided to carry this tradition on for my Children, my eldest Daughter is seven years old and she loves spending time playing board games.. Don't get me wrong she also loves her iPad, TV, DVD's and game consoles as much as the next child growing up these days.. But I think it's important families spend quality time together without modern technology getting in the way!...
This year I will be giving her Skribble Head - The fast guessing, draw on your own head game! Can you draw an elephant on your own head in just 15 seconds when you can't see what you're doing? How about a smiley face, a zebra crossing or a bunch of grapes? This fun-packed, hilarious, fast-paced game provides hours of entertainment for the whole family and makes a hilarious after dinner game! All players have to do is guess what is being drawn, correct guesses win chips and the player with most chips wins the game! This is a great family game that draws on creative skills whilst being a lot of fun for everyone! The game is best played with three or more players; and is ideal for those over the age of 8 years, priced around £14.95.
