Lots of little brains are working hard now school has gone back. Numbers, letters, reading and writing are all part of their daily learning. Kids are like little sponges and learning while playing at home and having fun can be combined. The following games and puzzle do exactly that – sit down and have some learning fun with the kids!
Brain Quest games encourage children to develop in the areas of language, arts, maths, memory, logic and problem solving, general knowledge and co-ordination through play. Children mix learning and fun in new exciting ways! Brain Quest games encourage children to explore and discover from preschool to 6th grade, and are recommended for ages 6 and over.
Brain Quest Sea-Quence is recommended for children in grades 1 and 2. How well do you think your children know the colours of the rainbow? This game of sun, sand and sequences will have players working together to put each set of cards in the correct order. Master all of the sequences and beat your high score. Ideal for between 1-4 players, Sea-Quence will test your logic skills.
If your children like mathematics, Brain Quest Slam the Door will be a hit. Roll the dice and lay down the number tiles that add up to the roll of the dice total. The first player to cover all the tiles gets to “Slam the Door!”. The winner is the player with the lowest score. Also recommended for grades 1 and 2, you can play alone or with multiple players.
Brain Quest Find Your Friends will assist working on co-ordination. Every child’s favourite games hide and seek make an appearance in this board game which is ideal for 2-6 players. Players race to find images of Gizmo and his Brain Quest friends in various disguises. The winner is the first and fastest to find the hidden characters. Recommended for children in kindergarten, I was playing hide and seek when I was a child and it’s still a winner here.
Brain Quest Silly Sentence (pictured top) has players work together to create sentences using proper nouns, verbs, adjectives and common nouns in creative and open-ended play. Designed for grades 1 and 2 and for 1 or more players, this game is a fun way to work on sentence building skills while having fun at the same time.
You can shop the Brain Quest full range which each have a RRP of $24.99 each in-store or online at Toys R Us – www.toysrus.com.au
My kids all love puzzles, but once they’re completed what happens to them? You pack them away. The I Spy floor puzzle (RRP $24.99) is a large, 35 piece floor puzzle based on the popular I Spy book series. Once the puzzle is complete, the fun isn’t over – players read the riddles and race to find the hidden objects! Designed for ages 3+ the biggest appeal for me with this puzzle is siblings of different ages can play it together. Large pieces mean little hands can also help easily. You can purchase through Kidstuff and all good toy retailers as well as online at www.toys2go.com.au
