Inside:Board Games for Teenagers and tweens that will have even your moodiest teen laughing out loud
There’s nothing like a good laugh to change the mood in your house.
As a mom of 4, including a tween and a teen, I know how things can get at home sometimes. The schedules and the homework and the never ending to-do list (not to mention the hormones) can leave everyone feeling stressed.
It’s almost like the whole household is one big funk.
one of the best ways I’ve found to turn the funk back info fun back is to add a little laughter.
Sometimes, it’s silly jokes at the dinner table or a funny movie or TV show we all enjoy. But the best memories are made when we play board games.
Now there are lots of great board games for teens and tweens. You can see some of the most popular ones here:
But there have been new board games that have popped up in recent years that are just downright hysterical. We’re talking games for teens and tweens that will have you all laughing so hard there could be tears, the good kind.
Since these games are fairly new to the scene, many people haven’t heard of them yet. OR because they’re not time tested, maybe you’re not sure if they’re really as good as they sound.
Well, after a little chatting with friends and trying some of them out ourselves, I’m pretty sure we’ve found some keepers.
