Family enjoying a board game at home

Who doesn’t love a little family competition? Sometimes, the same old board games can get a little boring. So, today, we are going to give you four DIY board games to change things up. The best part is they can all be made with household items. Don’t let boredom strike in your home, and implement these games into your weekly routine!

Dry Erase Scrabble

It’s no secret Scrabble is an old-time, family favorite. Although, the same word games can get boring. To shake things up, use a dry-erase board to create a lifesize experience for your family. Also, you can use a portion of the board to keep the score. While dry-erase boards are magnetic, the letters will easily latch onto the board. Keep the momentum going with this DIY hack, and Scrabble will be your family’s favorite pastime. Family fun has never been easier with this hack!

Leggo Chess Board

The best family games are both competitive and educational, as your kids are having so much fun they don’t even know they are learning. While chess has a load of mental benefits, including increased problem-solving skills, it doesn’t fall short when it comes to fun. If chess often intimidates your child, consider building the black and white checkered board out of legos. Also, easily keep up with the “chess pieces” because they are attachable lego pieces. Your kids will get a kick out of this unique game!

Personalized Guess Who

Who in the family knows each other the best? This personalized Guess Who game will put everyone to a test. With familiar faces, this game might just be the most fun you’ve ever had. Make sure you use photos of everyone making their silliest face yet for double the entertainment. This is a great way for kiddos to learn extended family members’ names over the holidays. Thank us later for the laughs!
