Exercising the mind in a variety of stimulating ways is key to staying healthy and optimistic. All of us, no matter what age we are, can benefit from toys, games and fun activities to stay in a focused and balanced state.
Here at Homecolours we love to see how well designer products can fill an important need in the home for entertaining diversions to draw our attention. For little ones, games and fun collections are a great way to keep brains active, and can be combined with learning tasks in a colourful format.
In the case of adults, games between fellow residents can help people to relax even in the most trying times. Playing cards or chess offer a helpful way to look at things in a different manner.
Here are some ideas for top games and activities for everyone.
The wonderful Wooden Balancing Game, Rainbow by Petit Collage is something that is sure to grab the little ones's interest. Featuring beautifully bright designs of animals and rainbows, the game is centred around rolling a die to see where the pieces will fit together. All packaged together neatly in a classic wooden box, this is a fantastic way to keep the kids busy!
Another great idea from Petit Collage is the Magnetic Play Set, Little Travellers. This collection of lively and colourful pieces is ideal for keeping a creative mind entertained. Capable of producing over 100 combinations of characters and costumes, the set is a fab way to experiment and have fun.
More animal fun is on offer with the Ferm Living Safari Animal Box, Set of 12. Containing a great mix of 12 exotic creatures, this collection is sure to inspire wild flights of fancy. Made from a natural, durable and easy to clean wood, the set is bound to fire up the imagination and keep the little ones entertained.
There's no reason why adults need miss out on all the fun either! Diversions and games of skill and chance are sometimes exactly what's needed.
A unique version of the classic game of chess is provided by Umbra with the Wobble Chess Set, Walnut. Crafted in loving detail from maple and walnut, and detailed in chrome, the set is captivating to look at even before you start playing. The concave landscaping of the game board ensures the pieces remain balanced and ready for action.
Staying in and having fun is more than possible with the Gentlemen's Hardware Campfire Games. While there may not be a tent or a fire included, there is a lot of opportunity for a lot of entertaining past times and games. The collection brings together a deck of playing cards, 6 dice, a pad and pencil for scores and instructions for three different games. A great source of fun for the whole household.
