50 Games Kids (And You) Will Love
Filed under: Video Games
Most of these games are family friendly and appeal to a huge range of interests and ages. Kids will enjoy sharing what they love with their parents, and parents can feel good about getting involved in their kids' media lives. We still recommend age-appropriate time-limits and games that encourage positive interactions.
Games We Love to Play
Here are some of our favorite active games:
Get Fit at Home
The American Heart Association found that playing active video games helps families be more physically active outdoors, too.
From full-on work outs to dance-fueled fun, these active games are a great way to mix exercise and entertainment.
Wii Balance Board Games
If you've got a Wii Balance Board, these games will put your abilities to the test.
Good Health Games
The games on this list help promote good health habits (they're not technically active, but they're still fun to play, too!).
With the Kinect, your body becomes the controller.
Playstation Move Games
Because the PS3 Move works in conjunction with a camera, in some of these games, you'll find yourself literally in the heart of the action.
