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.

Maths Games
