Educational games add up to heaps of fun. Bring a little action and activity to learning. Improve hand-eye coordination and math skills simultaneously with a target game. When every hit has a point value, kids improve aim and addition at the same time.
Looking for educational games with a musical element? Test out a table toy with plenty of lights, buttons and colorful characters to encourage learning. Letters and numbers become words and counting; gain exposure to shapes, animals and instruments, too. Pick up a more compact little laptop with the same curriculum for a burgeoning computer genius. Kids will delight at the controls of a keyboard that sends images into a seemingly magical mirror.
Educational games don’t have to be high-tech. Wooden blocks can build a great foundation for an array of learning. Begin understanding shapes, colors and sizes during play with a sorting set. Pick up on patterns while playing with geometric blocks or magnets—rearranging them into animal shapes or duplicating other pictures. Learn letters when blocks display the animals that represent each (or just individual alphabet pieces primed for forming words). Wooden letters can even be fit to finish puzzles to expand spelling and motor skills at once.
Learn so much more than mere mathematics and vocabulary with educational games. Expand your repertoire into puzzles that focus on geography, astronomy and paleontology. Even turn manners into a game when appropriate behaviors get charted with kids magnets. Every game has rules and rewards; a chore chart is no different. Multiply learning and entertainment when games are educational; count on Macy’s to make reading, writing and arithmetic playful.
