With days getting shorter and the holidays approaching, this time of year can be stressful for families.  But a family can unplug together and help its younger  members develop executive function at the same time:  with games, games and more games!
Old favorites, like Chinese checkers and Connect 4, and newer ones, like Quarto and Set, help children hone skills like working memory, prioritization and flexible thinking.  Gin rummy and hearts, or crossword puzzles and Rubik’s cubes will do the same.  In fact, common holiday activities like singing, cooking, and planning parties also contribute to developing executive function.  This can only be good news!
