Are one of those people that loved/loves school? If you are, I totally envy you! I never liked school. Learning in such a structured environment was difficult for me. I could blame it on having a more creative brain, or something like that. But in reality, my attention span isn’t long enough, and it wasn’t fun.
I can totally relate to the dog in the Disney movie Up. Squirrel….., I love you,…… Squirrel.
Anyway that is why I have always love to have games around the house that you can learn with. Mostly because you don’t even know that your learning. Errrrr, I mean the kids don’t know they are learning. They are kids games after all.
I thought I would share a few of our family favorites.
One of my very favorite games as a child and to play with my children is Husker Du, pronounced Hoo-sker Doo. I’m not sure how many people are familiar with this game. It’s a memory game, you lift up the pieces to find a pair of pictures that match.
Everyone in the family LOVES Uno. This game is great for learning numbers and colors.
My kids favorite game right now is Pop the Pig. I know it’s a weird name. My husband bought it for the kids when I was out of town. I didn’t love it the first time I played it. However it’s a great game for learning numbers and colors and counting.
Scrabble Junior is great for learning letters and spelling. This game is for for kids that are a little older, however if you are willing to sit and really do it with them, 3 year olds can have fun with it too.
I could go on and on. We have A LOT of games. These are just a few of our favorite learning games. How about you, what is your favorite learning game?
