Wii Games for the Whole Family

I'll admit it. We have a Wii and let our kids play video games.

Does that mean we park them on the couch every day and let them play for hours on end? Absolutely not.

The games are a fun way to break up a boring rainy day or cold winter night after we've run through our list of creative indoor activities for kids. I don't let them play just any video games, though.

I select games we can play as a family. Go Vacation (compare prices) is one of our favorites because we can ride jet skis, explore a resort on rollerblades or go horseback riding -- all things our normal days don't allow us to do.

We don't play every day or even every week so it's a rare treat to break out the video games. But when we do crank up the Wii, we make sure to interact with our kids so they're not vegging on the couch wasting the day away in their own world.

If you're looking for some fun video games that get the whole family talking, laughing and playing together, these Wii games for kids are perfect for the big and little kids in your house.
