The best games to play with the kids to keep them entertained tonight

Olivia Hayes

It’s all hustle and bustle… until the day actually arrives.

While Christmas morning can be hectic with Santa and the opening of presents, it all calms down after dinner time, when most of us retreat to the couch and end up watching some sort of show on TV.

It’s good to have some chill out time and to catch up with loved ones that you might not have seen in a while, but by the end of the day all you want to do is relax.

However, if you want to keep the kids entertained with the whole family – so they’re not just sitting on their own playing with their new toys – then here’s a list of the top 15 games – voted by The Spruce – that the whole family can play:

  • Monopoly
  • Scrabble
  • Codenames
  • The Game of Life
  • Clue
  • Watch Ya’ Mouth
  • Toilet Trouble Game
  • Family Feud Trivia
  • Jenga
  • Connect 4
  • Bingo
