Here are some other thoughts
Playing games is great for all families:  Some ideas that teach math skills are Chess, Checkers, Uno,Yahtzee, Farkle, Backgammon or Cribbage or try board games that teach decision making skills like Stratego, or Risk.  Crossword puzzles, word searches and games like Scrabble or Boggle are helpful with spelling skills,  Playing any games teach many skills and provide valuable opportunities for families to enjoy each other's company.  HAVE FUN!!
