Games for your brain

There are a lot of fun ways to help your child learn.  One fun way for your child to learn  is with games.

Some of our favorite brain building games include:

Brain Quest Question and Answer Decks

This is a great game to use on long trips in the car, or even at the dinner table together. There are levels for different ages, so the questions can be geared toward the right age for your children.

No Stress Chess

This game is an easy way for a parent and child to learn how to play chess together. Using cards to learn the rules as you go helps you learn how to play on your own, and the cards also help take off the pressure of making a bad decision in the game. Our son had more fun learning very young using the cards, and can now play without the cards.

Battleship (Milton Bradley)

This game is strategic in nature, and also uses letters and numbers.

What games do your children use to “build their brainpower”?
