I am big on my house in education and I try to make learning as fun as possible for my boys. I find that education is the most fun for them when they don’t realize that they are learning. Today, I am sharing five of the educational games that we have been doing this month that they are having a blast with.

Recently, my boys and I were able to try out the SmartMax Playground. This set is super awesome and has everything you need to turn learning into a hands-on experience. At first, they didn’t know what they wanted to build because there were so many options available in the instructions. Therefore, I let them have some free build time and we were able to sneak in some education by building the alphabet and numbers.
This product is definitely worth the investment because my boys have wanted to do this close to every night as an activity. With so many new creations to make this can keep, their little minds focused for hours too.
The Three Little Pigs are a favorite in my house. We have so many different variations of the story that they like watching so I already knew this game was going to be a huge hit among them.
My oldest likes this best, but it is a good brain game for all young children. With this game, you get a storybook with images and a booklet that has more than 40 challenges. The puzzle pieces fit in place perfectly and it kept my boys entertained for about 20 minutes before they wanted to move on to the next activity.
This game is recommended for ages 7+, however, my almost 6-year-old was able to get the concept behind this game.
This is another brain challenge puzzle game that really works your mind. The pieces do kind of remind you of candy, my youngest was hoping when I opened the box that it would be a sweet treat waiting inside.
We have had this set for a couple of years, but it still helps my oldest son out with his learning journey. With the pen (batteries required), you are able to allow your little one to explore reading and math. My son is not a huge fan of math, so this makes working on his math skills a little easier. They also have other sets available (we have the story set too), which can help kids in different age groups.
Why haven’t the batteries gone dead in this thing? Seriously, this is one of the most used toys in my house and the batteries have been holding up since summer. All of the boys love getting on it, but the good thing is it is helping them work on their balancing skills. Every day they are pulling this out, sometimes first thing in the morning. I have seriously considered hiding it from them while they are gone.
What is a fun educational game that your child loves?
