Fun Video Games That Will Allow Your Little Ones To Learn

July 2nd, 2013 Games

Video games are like a siren's call for your little ones. If it were up to them, they'd spend hours every day transfixed on the television screen as they rapidly move their thumbs and tackle whatever virtual obstacle is in their path. While you can't diminish their passion for digital play, you can make it more productive by introducing them to fun, interactive video games that encourage learning. Here are a few that you may want to check out.

Big Brain Academy

Big Brain Academy poses your child with a series of problems that are in the categories of Memory, Math, Identify, Think and Analyze, and the game assesses their skills by telling them how big their brains are. If they play on a Nintendo DS, Time Magazine reports they can also go head-to-head with their friends. Big Brain Academy is also available for Wii, and the whole family can get involved in multi-player mode or engage in a battle of wits with buddies online.

Kids Learn Spelling and Grammar

If you want to help your little ones ace their spelling quizzes, you may want to buy them Kids Learn Spelling and Grammar for Nintendo DS. According to CommonSenseMedia.org, it has multiple mini-games that allow them to develop their spelling and grammar skills as well as math and cognitive reasoning abilities.

uDraw Studio: Instant Artist

While book smarts are always a good thing to encourage your children to develop, you may want to allow them to cultivate their creative sides. The Wii game uDraw Studio: Instant Artist uses a virtual tablet on which your kids can draw using a variety of different brush sizes and colors. Time reports that they can even save their progress, so you can see their work in action.
