  1. Dominoes Kids Game

One of the biggest assets to our kids is having time outside. This way, they get aerobic exercise and gain skills, prevent obesity, strengthen muscles, as well as develop their cognitive abilities. This giant dominos set is in a lovely natural oak finish and is perfect for playing in compact places. You simply stack the dominos on top of each other for a new spin on a classic game. Teach your kids strategy and problem-solving in a fun and creative way.

If your family is having a stab at social distancing in the garden, come rain or shine, these games can offer a great way to get together.
