Keeping Up With Game Pieces

Guest Author - Lynn Little

Many children receive board games as presents. Sometimes kids will play with parts of the board game - which can lead to loss game pieces. By taking a few precautions, you can prevent any game pieces from becoming permanently lost.

Place all game pieces into a resealable bag. This will keep the pieces together. Kids may still play with the game pieces, but now they can place them back into a bag. This potentially could be easier for a kid to place the pieces back into a bag than the game box. Having the pieces in a bag will prevent pieces from getting lost.

Game instructions can easily be misplaced after playing a board game. Keep all of your board game rules together. File them away in a folder and place it on a shelf. Put it somewhere you will remember but out of the way of small hands. This will save you Internet searches or emailing the company for replacement instructions.

By having the instructions tucked away in a safe place, you will know how many game pieces are included with each game. When you are cleaning up your kid's room, you will know where to put game pieces. It can be very confusing and time-consuming to place game pieces with their game.

Place board games on the top shelf of your child's closet. Your kid will not be able to play with the board games unless you know about it. This will help to make sure that he or she plays with one game at a time. Check to see if all the game pieces are in the box before placing the game back into the closet.

Place your kid's board games with all of the other family games. If you have a gaming closet, then put his or her games on a low shelf for easy access. It will give your child the freedom to play the game anytime and also keep the game well protected.

Even when you take every precaution, game pieces can disappear. Should your child lose game pieces, then all is not lost. Common household items like buttons or coins make wonderful substitutes for game pieces. Cut up sheets of paper and have your kid make "play money." As long as you have the instructions, then you can improvise game pieces.

Board games for children make excellent gifts. Playing board games can really help develop their young minds. Tell kids it is important to take care of their board games so that they can enjoy them for a long time.
