We still have summer break where my kids go to school. That means 3 months of no school. Toward the end of every school year I download a bunch of print outs for the kids to do while on break. I spend hours finding something for each of them. Every year the summer gets away from me and before I know it they are heading back without learning a thing. Blue Orange games has fun games that would have saved my behind if I had known about them before summer started. I’m lucky that I found them a month before school starts so my kids can brush up on their school skills before school starts again.
This year we are going to be ready for back to school with our brains ready to go. Blue Orange games make learning fun for the kids. Keeping their minds busy while keeping them entertained. Children can be fickle, something they love one minute they might not love the next, so its important to have a few different games to change it up often.
My kids will immediately shut down if they think I am trying to disguise learning in a “fun” game. But these games are amazing and really kept them entertained. I think some of it has to do with the fact they can compete against each other to see who wins the game. Making it fun, but shhhh don’t tell them they are learning.
Blue orange offers games for all ages. Some of my favorites are listed below.
