When it comes to learning, there’s nothing kids love more than having fun whilst they learn. Fortunately for you, there’s some great learning games for kids out there that are ideal at not only teaching your kids, but ensuring they have fun whilst doing it. We’ve compiled our list of some of the best games out there, making your life easier along the way.
Seeing as technology is so prominent these days it’s important that we ensure our kids are up to scratch. It’s highly likely at school they’ll be using a computer so a typing game is a great way of getting them learning.
There’s an awesome typing game by Fenetic Wellbeing that’ll get the kids minds working, whilst having fun. There are 10 categories to choose from and they have 60 seconds to type out as many answers as they possibly can. Not only is it educational, it’s a whole lot of fun and if you have more than one child you can turn it into a bit of a competition.
They may not like or enjoy it but every kid has to do Maths as part of the curriculum. There’s a really good, educational and fun game that’s free to download on iPad/iPhone called Math Ninja. It puts their maths skills to test to defend the tree-house against a hungry tomato and his robotic army. You’ll have to use maths to defend your tree-house! They’ll be having so much fun they won’t even realise it’s educational!
There are loads of great hangman games out there that get their minds working and vocabulary and spelling tested. Again, there are a few games you can download on your iPad or iPhone to let them play directly on there. There is also a range of online games that you can play where you can pick the difficulty level based on age or ability.
Do you have a budding Spielberg in your home? Then look no further than the Lego Movie Maker app. Your kids can put their creative thing caps on and edit their own mini films using their favorite DC film superheroes in the shape of Lego men. You never know, this could be the start of their Oscar winning career. Either way, it’s a great way for them to start thinking creatively.
One of the most popular jigsaw apps is called Tozzle. This game lets you choose from 40 different shape based puzzles that all come with adorable sound effects and animations. Tozzle not only keeps your kids entertained it allows them to improve their shape recognition skills and motor activity. It’s available on Apple’s iPad and iPhones for a small fee.
More Maths Fun
There’s more to Maths than just simple counting, there’s games out there that can help them with time, money and fractions. They can pick up basic knowledge of how time and money works as well as learning more about fractions. There’s no harm in getting them ahead of the game!
These are the top games that we’d recommend for your children. We are sure there are loads more out there so if you know of any that we’ve missed then feel free to comment below, we’d love to hear what you have to say!
