Summer is here and you might have heard your kids say already a time or two they are getting bored! If that is the case in your house, consider buying some new games for them! I have gathered some board games for tweens! These games are for that in-between age, and can be harder to find ways to keep them entertained with games! I have found some, and I think you all might enjoy them! These games are for girls and boys, and perfect for a family game night as well!
I am a fan of family game nights, as it allows you to connect and unwind from a busy week. Share some laughs and these games will be a great one to toss into your game rotation! I think your tween will thank you if you bring home a new game for them. Let them play the game with their siblings, or have some friends over and they can hang out and play games!

Spontuneous – The Song Game– If your tween loves music, this could be a perfect game. You get a word given, and then you race to figure out a song containing that word.
