Play educational games with Poki and win a Fire Tablet #KiddyChartsAdvent

We have a lovely giveaway on Day 10 of our Advent competitions – we are giving away a Fire Tablet thanks to the game site, Poki.


I have just spent a few moments with the kids taking a look at the site, and to be honest – it’s moments like this when I realise that my job is quite cool. I have just played free educational online games for work!

We tried Zombie Typocalypse first, which is one of their typing games, and it’s a lot of fun, and does teach typing to the kids. You need to “shoot” the zombies by making sure you type the words they are moaning; which you can see above their heads.


Stuntboy was particularly excited because there were rude words and guns involved… ;-)


If you would rather concentrate on other aspects of the kids learning, then the Europe game is REALLY HARD, but very good for geography skills. You need to choose where the plane lands in Europe, after being told told its destination. You would expect that this was easy for adults, right?

Wrong. My score isn’t very good here, is it?


Finally, the Matt vs Maths game starts off easy, and then gets progressively harder. Perfect for both brain training, and the quick mental arithmetic that the kids need to do these days.


It definitely makes you think you are in for an easy ride, with some simple 1+1 questions. How hard can it get when the answers are only 1, 2 or 3?

You will be surprised how complicated the Maths expressions become after only a few levels of success, and my kids were pretty quick to decide that this was doing their Maths a lot of good. Skeptical at first because the answers they had to choose from were very basic, but then totally taken in and keen to beat the game and move on to the next level when questions got more complex.

Do check all the other games out on the site, there really is something for everyone. The kids also loved the brain training game, Tingly. This has a few different mini games within it to improve you and your kids brain – exercises for the grey cells, if you like.
