Games to aid education at home

Education is massively important to a child. Not only will it help them progress through their school life and on to finding a career but it will also help them in general with many day to day activities that they will have to do.

As a parent you may think that education is for school but you may not realise the impact home life can have on. Children whose parents spend a little bit of time with them on a regular basis, reading, writing and doing maths often excel in these subjects at school.

If you want to help with your child’s education but do not want them to have to do worksheets or working out of a book then why not try some games? There are a number of games on the market which are aimed at being educational as well as fun.

Orchard games are a popular choice as they create fun and stimulating games for children that can be easily set up and are enjoyable. They range from counting and simple maths to problem solving and spelling.

Find a game that is age appropriate to your child and have a go. You may be surprised how much they enjoy it, spending time with you, whilst not really realising they are actually learning at the same time.
