Favorite Things - Chess

Playing chess is one of our favorite ways to pass the time.

My Mom is getting Owen a no stress chess set for Christmas. She found it at Mindware. Owen has been asking to play for quite some time.
How old were your kids when they began to learn?? Owen is six.
I guess it is never to young if there is an interest!

Hi Tara,
I think my kids both started before they were 5 (my son for sure). We have a great book called Checkmate at Chess City that uses puzzles to teach the moves of the various pieces.
I really enjoy chess, I wish I'd learned how to play as a child (my husband taught me not long after we met).
Have a great Christmas!

Love that set! Where did you get that? I have been looking forone since my 7 year old finished Chess Camp.

Hi Shawna,
My husband bought it for me at a local craft fair many years ago. He taught me how to play chess when we first started dating, and that set was one of my first Christmas gifts from him. I love it!
