Just Play Kid Games!

Fun Games For Kids

You're going to laugh, but there was a time when I would not allow my children to play kid games during the day for fear someone would see my kids playing games! I was afraid that I would have to explain why they were not in homeschool studying!

That was a l-o-n-g time ago. Before I knew how important it was for them to play games.

We play games most anytime now, and lots of them!
