Play, build and create with Target

The team at Target have put together some of the best activities to keep the kids entertained and their brains stimulated, including games the whole family can play together at home.


For hundreds of years, board games have been a way to bring family and friends together for some healthy competition. From classics like Chess and Checkers to modern-day interactive games like Pictionary Air, it is a great activity for the whole family or for brothers and sisters to spend some time together. Games also have added learning experiences such as developing fine and gross motor skills, problem-solving, social learning and more.

Here are some of our favourites:


Lego — we all know it. Most of us grew up with it. It is one of the largest brands in the world, is instantly recognisable and has a massive fan base. But have you ever thought of the educational benefits of Lego?

Lego promotes fine motor skills as children practise dexterity as they connect Lego pieces of different sizes and shapes. This requires different amounts of pressure to assemble and becomes a wonderful exercise for little fingers which supports children in controlling the pressure they apply while writing. Lego stimulates creativity as children can create their own police station, spaceship, racing car or an entire town. With so many shapes, colours, and sizes, children have endless possibilities.


Craft and Science kits are the perfect things to stimulate and encourage your kids to learn. Developing fine motor skills, problem-solving and concentration skills also offers a great reward and positive emotions as they create something from scratch. It's also great for the whole family as you can all work on projects together.

There is something for everyone, why not try one of these?
