Thanks so much for supporting a small business and visiting our family owned blog 💕

Today I'm sharing some of the most fun games your family would enjoy for a game night at home! Winter is coming fast here in Minnesota. One of our favorite things to do when it's cold outside is stay at home, eat some snacks and play some board or card games!

This collection of games is perfect for preschoolers and the older kids too! Some are classic that I used to play when I was growing up and some are newer that my teen and I discovered and love to play together. 

We always keep an eye out at thrift stores or garage sales for games we don't have yet. It's always quick to check if all the pieces are there and you can grow your game collection for a fraction of the cost of new.

I'm also sharing some great snack and drink recipes that you can make and serve for your game night at home! Have fun!
