Fun Toys That Children Can Play

Girls love to challenge themselves with games just as much as boys.  Many girls break the stereotype of playing with dolls and “girls games”.  Women are indulging themselves in degrees in science and math and these areas will expand with women professionals as we continue to move forward.  There are many challenging games for a girl that move beyond just dress up games.

Rubik’s Cube

This is a classic game for girls to work with.  If your daughter is more hands on with patterns, this is best thing to jump into in the beginning.  They just have to figure out how to create a line of or match all the colors with each other.  To make it more interesting, start timing her and see if she can beat her previous times.  You can also make it into an enjoyable race among kids.

Puzzles are a great challenge for all ages.  You can also choose different pictures that your little child is interested in.  This provides a calm way of compiling smaller pieces into bigger ones.  You can challenge kids with 3D puzzles of ice floes or something else they watch on TV or even flipping the picture over and putting the puzzle together without using any image as guidance — relay course style. For younger kids, this tones the dexterity in their hands to help them be better with their pincher grasp. They can also do this with the rest of the family and can turn it into some quality family time.

Diner Dash

You can never go wrong with Diner Dash. This one is a great kids’ game for not only girls to play but boys.  Themes like this teach your young lady how to multitask and organize priorities in a restaurant setting.  The point is that as it gets more difficult to take and fill orders, put the orders in and give the correct orders to the tables, the player must figure out what needs to be done in what order and what is the most efficient way of taking care of your tables.  This not only teaches event organization but is a great way to introduce the value of working.

Games that girls can enjoy


Sudoku Game

Sudoku is a simple game that is better for older girls.  This helps them become more interested in numbers and deductive reasoning.  It is fun and simple and there are different levels so if your young lady needs to challenge herself, she can increase the difficulty.  This also breaks the stereotype that boys are better at math and science and girls are better at writing and literature.

Dress Up Games

Your young ladies often like to dress up or practice putting make up on.  You can do this in reality or in applications on technology.  If your daughter is having a sleepover or a play date, you can provide them with a dress up contest or make up contest.  If your kid just wants to practice dressing up and matching designs, she can use applications like “Stylist Girl” or “Trendy Fashion Styles Dress Up.”  You can also play a game where you design a wardrobe and make up palette for Barbie.  These are all fun if these are subjects your girl is interested in.  These are one of the top girls’ games.

Food Games

Like Diner Dash, there are many kids’ games that include putting toppings and ingredients into a dish.  This is great because she can practice putting little things together that make bigger products.  Some applications are even more complicated that provide portions that need to be put together.  This will later help with Geometry and fractions.

Minute To Win It

These games are short and fun to play not only for your little girl, but for the family.  These best games can be simple like trying to get a ping pong ball into a cup.  One game, you can use mini marshmallows and try to pick them up with chop sticks.  The goal is to get as many marshmallows into the cup in a minute.  This builds muscles in your little girl’s fingers to help with her dexterity as well as have some fun with family.  Plus, learning to use chop sticks is quite a skill.

There is one that is similar to the game “Heads Up” or “Taboo,” where your kid puts a sticky note on her forehead and asks people yes or no questions.  She has to figure out what or who she is.  This helps with deductive reasoning and learning how to ask the right questions.

These are the best games for quick fun and for children parties.


Board Games

I do not mean board games like “Candy Land” or “Shutes and Ladders”.  Those games are based on luck and provide no challenge whatsoever.  The best options are like “Monopoly,” which helps teach money management, business, and capitalism.  Or the ones like “Settlers of Catan” that provide how to trade, barter, and build settlements.  They can also play “Cranium” which comes with trivia they need to solve, artistic challenges for points, and wordplay challenges they need to catch and answer.  You can even play “Taboo,” because it teaches children to use other synonymous words and how to use words to describe something.  This helps them later on when they are trying to describe events, objects, and people without knowing who or what those things are.  Plus, these are fun games to play together and build strong team skills, which is important for the workforce and learning about collaboration.  Some of these mentioned options also teach your little one strategies that will only help improve their reasoning skills later on in life.


Final Decision

Many girls like to play challenging games aside from a fun game.  If you look, you will merely find games that are considered “girly” but in reality, girls’ interests are expanding.  Your little ladies like all sorts of things like girls power style challenge, not just ice princess, clothes, Harley Quinn, fashion and make up.  All these complete games are great to challenge your little girl.  One of the best rules to get them interested in these new game challenges is by doing these as a family.  It’s always fun when your best friends and family enjoy it as well!
