Children's Games

June 4, 2023

When my twins were a little over 2 years old, they started playing some board games by the actual rules! Before that, I had introduced them to board games and they liked playing with the pieces. I blogged about some of those experiences in my Training Games series. But when they started playing games by the rules, I started making overview videos of each game we've played. Here's the playlist on YouTube of all the videos I've made about children's games. The links to each overview video in the playlist are also below, grouped by how old my kids were when they first played the game by the rules.

Additionally, I made a list of some of my (and my kids') favorites to play with 2 year olds and 3 year olds! I'm also planning on making a list video for each year as they grow older.

Training Games: Teddy's Colors and Shapes

February 22, 2021

by Ambie Valdés
This is part of a series called Training Games, where I review children's games when playing (with modified rules) with my twin toddlers. This review was written when my twins were 17 months old.

Teddy’s Colors and Shapes has boards with different cut out shapes and wooden pieces of different shapes and colors. You roll a die that’s either a color or a shape (depending on which mode you’re playing) and then get one of those colors or shapes and place them into a corresponding cut out.
