2015-2016's "Best of" Kids' Educational Games
I titled this article for brainy kids because I believe all kids, no matter what age, are brainier than we adults give them credit for. Their creative minds and thriving imaginations act as sponges, soaking up must-have knowledge and interesting facts with an ease that most of us dream of.
In this article, you will find the three best educational games for kids in 2015. These modern youngsters are brainier about different topics, and their love for learning is incredible. One of these games is all about strategic thinking, while another tests the limits of imagination, and the next hones memorizing skills.
Rory’s Story Cubes
Reading is SO important to me. There is something special about bedtime stories and fairytales – about storytelling and finding a great book to share with others. Which is why I LOVE the Story Cubes game.
This game is all dice – literally. Each dice has a different storytelling component in the form of a picture that symbolizes what should go in a story next. You can play alone, or with friends, taking turns to roll the cubes and create an imaginative tale that only ends when your creativity runs dry.
Simon has graced our presence since 1897. No kidding – it has been around THAT long. Most kids, myself included, had one of these electronic games in our closets, often digging it out to challenge friends and siblings to hours-long wars of memorization and repetition. I never, ever won, but it was so much fun to play.
This version of Simon has been revamped a bit, which means it includes several new methods of gameplay. The concepts are still the same though – follow the colors, remember the sequence, repeat what you remember, and get faster with each turn until either you or Simon gives up.
Brain Quest Smart Game
Be S-M-A-R-T. This game is about the fundamentals of knowledge. Science, Math, Art, Reading, and The World. When you put the first letters of these words together, it makes SMART – a Brain Quest game where you have to answer questions correctly, and quickly, to earn a letter card.
The objective of this game is spelling the entire SMART word before opponents do. Of course winning this game will give kids bragging rights, but each question is intriguing, thought-provoking, and interesting. It is an educational challenge that rewards youngsters with both knowledge and a sense of accomplishment.
