Great math games for the holidays

December 3, 2009 at 10:34 am 2 comments


In today’s world knowing the basics of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing are very important but so is problem solving, critical thinking and deductive and inductive reasoning along with the ability to make  judgements and good estimates.  Playing games like those listed below will help develop those needed skills. 

  Blink is a fun fast paced game of categorizing for kids aged 5 on up for about $6.  SET is also a categorizing game requiring deeper thinking recommend for age 8+  for $10.  Blokus is one of my favorite games developing spatial perception and logic age 8+ cost around $27.  Gobblet  a great expansion on the traditional Tic-Tac-Toe game cost about $30 age 5+.  Mancala is a great game that is also the longest played game in history age 7+ cost around $8.  Sequence for Kids is great for younger age 3 to 7 cost $20.

    Maybe it’s better if you put the links to the games you set as example so that we can get the chance to see it those games are of our interest. I might also get interested but as of the moment I let my kid play games from YourKidsClub because it’s very educational and fun to play, she doesn’t get tired of studying because she enjoy what she’s doing.

    In addition to classic Gobblet I can suggest Gobblet Gobblers (previously known as Gobblet Junior). This game is even more close to tic-tac-toe, but having a great design attracts kids with much more effect. More at Gobblet site.
