Games, Games, and More Games!

I think games are an awesome way to teach and to have some fun along the way. I just seem to forget to pull them out sometimes. I think if I lived where we were snow bound for days at a time they would be out a lot more often.

Many of you know that I sell my jewelry on Etsy. What you may not know is that I am a part of a homeschool street team on Etsy called SHE (Schooling at Home Etsians). You can find our blog here. Street teams are basically a group of people that have a common interest or live in the same part of the country (or world). This group of people have joined together to support one another and promote each other. The homeschool team has some awesome sellers on there. I knew of one shop that sells games that I love so I decided to see if anyone else has any games. This is what I found (and I am sure there are more).

Antiquity Gamecrafters has beautifuly crafted, handmade games. I have been drooling over these every since I saw the shop. I love handmade games and I really like the idea of old games that go along with the time period and cultures that we study. I wish I had this game the last couple of years when we were studying world history. Hope that we can have one the next time we cycle through. Go check them out!

Living Earth Gallery has some intersting felted clothing and other items. I have found tucked away among all the other items this lovely little card game with all kinds of great information. Go read more about it by clicking on the image. This game just went on sale too.

I also came accross this vintage game that A Dusty Attic has in her shop. There is only one available. This looks like it would be a fun travel game for those (like us) that take two day trips with the kids. What better way to have fun and learn along the way.

To find the newest listings by the SHE team click here, or do a search for "sheteam" on Etsy.

Thank you so much for mentioning my game. I only put it on sale a few hours ago. You did find it fast!
Great blog as well and beautiful children.

Great ideas! The educational games are always #1 in my book. The two we got for Christmas this year are Blokus and Shut the Box.
