Board games have always been one of my favorite ways to spend time with people and they are perfect for rainy days. They are a great way to learn how to be competitive while still having fun and not taking things too seriously.
When I babysit, I almost always play board games with the kids. When we build a fort they love to play a game while we are in the fort too! I try to teach them that winning is not the only way to have fun and that losing is not the end of the world. I try to show them that the point of the board game is to simply have fun and to spend time with others.
