Educational Games That Will Keep Your Child Entertained

Children have a very short attention span, which makes it difficult to teach them the alphabet, numbers, and shapes. If you want a creative way to keep your child entertained, while secretly teaching educational academics, you should consider board and learning games. Below you will discover a short list of educational games that will keep your child entertained.

Enhance Attention Span

By keeping your children entertained with educational learning games, you will be boosting their attention span. If you child cannot focus on the task at hand, they will have difficulty excelling in preschool. Of course, as your child grows, his/her attentions span will become longer, but you cannot help him by entertaining his mind with educational games.

ABC Blocks

ABC blocks are wonderful for young toddlers. They can learn how to stack the blocks, which will enhance their hand and eye coordination, while discovering their alphabet letters. It is important to only introduce one letter at a time to your child. Allow him to become familiar with it, before introducing a new letter. Do not become frustrated with him, if he fails to remember the entire alphabet within several weeks, because he is young and it may take a little longer.

Tiggly Shapes

Tiggly Shapes is a learning game that provides the child with several different toy shapes including the circle, triangle, star, and square. This game actually works alongside a mobile app, which must be downloaded on a tablet or iPad. This is an interactive game that presents several animals that are created out of shapes.

The child will need to match the animal shapes with the toy shapes. The app can interact with the toys, so it will be able to determine whether or not the child selected the correct shape. Tiggly Shapes is designed for children between 18 months and 4 years old.

Money Bags Coin Value

This is an educational board game that helps young children learn everything about money, even totally up a sum. This game comes with small coins, so it is not suitable for children under the age of three years old. It is important to monitor your child, while they are playing this game and besides you may have a little fun in the process.

History of the United States

This is a very popular Professor Noggin’s game. There are a large variety of these games to select from including insects, ocean life, dinosaurs, and pets. This card game will turn any dull evening into a fun filled night of trivia. The child will select a card and attempt to answer the question. You would be surprised to discover how fast your child will catch on and begin to store the information. This game is suitable for children between the ages of 6-14.


If you are interested in teaching your child with old fashioned educational tools, you should look no further than the board, block, and card games. These games can definitely keep your child entertained, while learning an abundance of educational and historical facts. If you wish to take advantage of some of these games, you will need a suitable tablet for your child. Therefore, you should always read toddler tablet reviews , so you make the right choice.
