Since we are a homeschool family we seek out a variety of ways to educate our children. Some of the best and funnest ways are to play with puzzles and games. My husband was given all of his board games and puzzles when we got married. We have since added to our collection from freecycle and garage sales.



We own a great variety of games from the popular like LIFE, Trouble, Monopoly, and Battleship to the lessor known titles of Lost Treasure, Hook Line & Stinker or Probe. The really sad thing is we have so many board games and we rarely play them. I think my kids are now hooked since they “had” to play games all day in order for me to get some good pics. We have enough games to play a different one every week for over a year. Now that’s a lot of games.

Boggle Jr.- Lil’ Red is really good at this game: see him in action here!

Pass the Pigs- super fun, crazy game I had never heard of until hubby told me about playing with it when visiting aunts and uncles.

Not too long ago, well before C-4 was born, I gave most of our preschool girl puzzles away. Princess had outgrown all the 24 ct. , 60 ct., and 100 ct. puzzles and we needed room for more learning puzzles. We still own not one, but  TWO plastic sweater boxes of kids puzzles plus a puzzle shelf filled with old fashioned preschool learning puzzles! I guess I love collecting educational items to use with my children.

  1. I love that US puzzle. I learned the names and locations of the states from a puzzle like that! 🙂
