This is our favorite game to play right now!!! Heads Up is a great app that you can download and play as a family! All you have to do is pick a category and choose one person to guess. That person holds the phone up to their forehead while the others give them clues to guess what the answer on the phone is. Tilt the phone forward for a correct guess and tilt it backwards to pass. There are multiple categories to choose from including "Just for Kids," "Animals Gone Wild," and "Food For Thought" that work really well with young kids. My husband and I even play with each other with the other categories!
Although this game was made just to have fun, it truly promotes learning! Children have to read what is on the phone and use critical thinking skills to quickly think of ways to describe each answer. It is so fun to hear the different ways my kids share clues and how they relate the answers to books we have read or things they have learned in school. We love it and hope you will, too!
