Education in values is an issue of great relevance in today's society. That is why the chapter focuses on highlighting several points. The subject of values has been, is, and will always be a fundamental, transcendent, and a permanently topical issue in education. Values are constantly present in our lives and that is why we must emphasize the work and empowerment of these, inside and outside the classroom and in any subject, in a playful and motivating way for our children, that is, using the activity that is present in all human beings, the game. Therefore, the main objective of this chapter will be to know the relevance of games, not only for recreational purposes, but also for learning, and to highlight the need to work on education in values for the personal development of children.
