Look, I’ll just say it: there’s a supreme lack of critical thinking in the world today. I don’t know what to do about it, other than hope that we can teach our kids – the next generation – to do better. MUCH better. And the only way to accomplish this is if we, as parents, take it upon ourselves to teach them that they can think. One of the best ways to do this is through critical thinking and logic board games for kids.
I want to stress here that there’s a seemingly small, but quite significant, difference between “teaching kids HOW to think” and “teaching kids that they CAN think“. These terms often get used interchangeably, but I prefer to say “teach kids that they CAN think” because that’s essentially what critical thinking is: the confidence in knowing that we can think on our own…and not just performing a thought sequence in the manner how we’ve been taught to think it.
This may sound like a small issue of semantics, but I think it matters, so I wanted to point it out.
Either way, on to the matter at hand: *THE* List of Critical Thinking & Logic Board Games for Kids.

Why am I reviewing all of these logic board games for kids? Simple answer: I was on a quest to find some good games for my own kids, and I tend to think too much about stuff & go down rabbit trails, & I started researching all the games I could find. So here we are & I figured I might as well share my reviews & opinions on these logic board games for kids with everyone else too!
