Even though we’re reluctant to say that summer is coming to an end, we are SO excited for the first day of school. Prepare like a pro with these essential back-to-school toys. Geotoys and Brain Quest do a great job of exercising the brain… even when your family is on the go. Whether you’re at the beach soaking in those last rays of summer sun or staying in, your kids can get classroom-ready with the following games.
Geotoys has two games for kids who are history buffs in training: Presidents Poker and the American History Go Fish Game. Since the presidential debates are in full swing, it’s a good time to learn about our historical heads of state. Your child will dazzle classmates and friends with interesting tidbits on America’s past, all the while enjoying a classic card game.
Think gameshow trivia on-the-go (no buzzers required). Brain Quest is a question-and-answer game that is specific for your child’s age and grade. Starting 3rd grade in a month? Just pick up Brain Quest for ages 8-9 for curriculum specific questions that are in a game-like format. With games like these, your kids will want to keep learning.
