Next to a pic of Elise careful reaching for a yellow stick, Piers wrote: "Giving my daughter a masterclass in giant-sized Spillikins. Every time she gets close to lifting one out, I make her laugh."
The game requires the players to alternate picking up rods without disturbing the pile.
Piers also made sure he stayed in touch with his sons while they are apart during lockdown.
He shared a sweet picture from his FaceTime call with Spencer, 26 and Albert, 19, with his fans hailing the guys "hot".
Earlier in the week Piers revealed that Albert had showed signs of having Covid-19.
Piers has three sons, including 22-year-old Stanley.
Spencer and Albert have been living at their mum's house, while Piers has been with his new wife Celia, and their daughter Elise and also Stanley.
But the dad-of-four is keen to make sure he still stays in touch with his boys during this tough time.
Taking to Instagram to share the sweet snap of Spencer and Albert and their dog Conor on the phone, he wrote: "Conor definitely wins the Quarantine FaceTime facial hair contest."
It was on Wednesday that Piers revealed Albert hadn't been very well, speaking on GMB he said: "One of my sons had it in a much milder way. He lost his taste and smell. Still hasn't got it back. It is a weird thing."
His co-host Susanna Reid, 49, turned to Piers and exclaimed: "Your son?"
Piers went on: "Yes my youngest boy had it.
"I think most people are associating (lack of taste and smell) that with the virus, luckily he didn't get anything like what you had but he had that experience for a few days. It’s a very unnerving thing to get."
Given how contagious COVID-19 is, the presenter later clarified on the show: "I hadn’t seen my son for three weeks before he presented with symptoms, he was at his mum's."
Meanwhile, Piers has sent his support to GMB co-star Kate Garraway after she revealed that her husband Derek Draper was in intensive care battling coronavirus.
He reached out to his friend after news of Derek's condition went public.

Acknowledging that he'd been aware of his friend's situation beforehand, Piers tweeted: "Now it’s been made public, I can say this horrendous situation has brought the coronavirus crisis sharply into the hearts of all of us @GMB. My love & prayers to Kate & Derek."
Susanna Reid also messaged support, simply writing: "All my love to Kate and Derek."
Derek, 52, was rushed to hospital with COVID-19 symptoms on 30th March, and Kate is "sick with worry" as he remains in intensive care.
