Need some fun!! Come enjoy a family game night with Barrington Books. Put away your phones, get off the computer, turn off the TV, grab the family and head to your favorite toy/ book store for a free night of connecting with family and community.
We love playing games and we know you will too. Barrington Books hosted our first game nights earlier last Fall and are looking forward to bringing friends and families together again. We have so many great games to try out. Anyone from 4-99 will find the perfect game to play. We have everything from one person strategy games to group games for you to sample. What a great way to get in the quality time that is so hard to carve out in our fast paced world.
Many don’t even realize the benefits of simply playing games together as a family. Games are a great way to reinforce important educational skills such as math, problem solving, spelling, vocabulary and critical thinking. Even for the very small there are lessons in taking turns, predicting outcomes, visualizing patterns and memory all disguised as good old fashioned fun.
And social skills….YES!! Games help us strengthen our attention spans, exhibit patience with others and are a great way to reinforce winning and losing with grace.
But your family and friends will be having so much fun they won’t even realize all the underlying benefits for your whole family. That can stay our little secret. Join us!!
