Annie Kate from Tea Time with Annie Kate
We enjoy board games, card games, and puzzles, often in binges. Sometimes my girls will point out that a particular game is educational and that, therefore, they should play it instead of concentrating on school work. Name that Country, Flags, Revelation, and some of our puzzles come to mind. Little do they know that I consider Yahtzee, Blokus, Quirkle, Monopoly, Risk, and even Settlers of Catan to have educational value as well.
We enjoy some educational computer games but usually try to minimize them since recent research suggests that screens contribute less to actual learning and more to learning problems than was formerly thought. What’s more, most computer games are solitary (although we have spent hours playing Wordament together) and most people need more connection with others.
There’s also a lot to be said for cooperative board games and we have enjoyed a variety of them over the years; we have also learned to tweak competitive games to be kinder and less combative.

I love that games can be a sneaky way to get in some learning, especially if you have a child who is resistant to formal lessons. They are also just a great way to add some fun and change up the pace with your kids. Even your most ordinary games like Uno, Candy Land, and Sorry! have educational value to them!
Here are just a few of the games we have used and love to teach things like math, geography, science and more!
