One of the best parts we love about our RV is the comfort found during inclement weather at the campsite. Since all kids get bored quickly, we keep a stash of board games and other toys inside for entertaining when mother nature pushes us inside. Here are some of our favorites.
The best games will depend on the age of your children. Thankfully, even older kids love returning back to the classics every once in a while…especially if it means they can beat mom and dad!
The Uno card game is easy to pack, super cheap, and enjoyable by all ages.
Sorry is another fun classic that is rated for ages 6 and up, but can oftentimes be enjoyed by younger kids with a bit of help.
Our favorite part about Chutes & Ladders is how someone can go from the winning to losing position in just one turn. This makes winning more attainable even for the younger sibling.
Farkle is a simple and fun dice game that also helps younger children start to perform addition (highest points wins the game).
Another easy to pack, easy to play game is Bananagrams. Think an easier version of Scrabble that assembles words like a crossword puzzle. The “Big Letter” edition includes larger tiles for the kids to see and arrange better.
This Chess/Checkers/Backgammon combo set is perfect for your camping kiddos. Magnetic pieces keep them on the board easier.
