Born in the era of technology, kids these days are very familiar with using smartphone or other touchscreen devices from a young age. From a study of ICollectOZ, about 91% of children play games. Although parents sometimes feel concerned about this matter, they somehow cannot fight the trend. Don’t be negative; instead, you can turn your child’s understanding of technology to advantage.
You can’t stop kids using smartphone. Hence, ICollectOZ suggests parents encouraging their children to play educational games. These games play a crucial part in remaining youngsters’ mind active even after school. Learning outside the classroom is now effortless with games. However, not all educational games are considered as the worthily learning tool. Choosing games that are safe for kids is extremely important. Not only bringing joys, games with education features also enhance your little one’s spelling, reading, and math skills.
Here is ICollectOZ list of 5 Best Learning Games for Kids:
- Scout’s 5 ABC Garden (for ages 2-4)
In this game, your kids will meet Scout, a green puppy. Once starting, Scout will bring kids to a vast backyard to receive the task. The objective here is – players will assist the puppy in doing several simple missions (growing letters, counting water drops, finding lost items, etc.) Through Scout’s 5 ABC Garden, your little one will be able to learn their name, favorite color and food, and even how to count numbers.
- Balloony Word (for ages 6-10)
Here, there are a gorilla and a kangaroo floating helplessly with a bunch of balloons; each balloon has a letter. The two animals’ lives are now in the hands of players. The question of this game is to guess correct words by using all the given letters. There are different categories, through levels, ranging from fruits to vegetables. With a wrong guess, one balloon will be exploded, bringing one out of two characters closer to the ground. Balloony Word, as per ICollectOZ, is a good game for kids – it helps adding more words to your child’s vocabulary library.
- Stack the States (for all ages)
The only interesting way to help your kids have interest in learning geography is putting faces on the map. Via this app, the children will know more about United States geography. The game will offer players a variety of questions related to US capitals, state shapes, borders, and abbreviations. Answer correctly and kids can add that place to their states collection. For the win, kids have to stack all states to the finish line. More interestingly, Stack the States allows up to six players, so it can be played by the whole family.
At the end, nothing brings families closer together than game competition, right?
- Dinosaur Park Math (for ages 8-12)
Instead of leaving your children at home with Jurassic Park series, ICollectOZ recommends Dinosaur Park Math. This game contains all the dino facts, as well as questions about addition and subtraction. Taking kids to a dinosaur park, they then will be provided numerous math challenges in order to complete the ultimate mission – unlocking different areas of the park. Once math problems are solved, facts about certain dinosaurs will be given. As progressing, math problems will become harder and even more advanced.
With Dinosaur Park Math, learning math is no longer getting frustrated.
