Keep Your Children's Brains Working With These Indoor Activities

The summer break provides the best time for students to take some time away and spend it in front of the TV. Actually, that’s what they also do during the winter break... and all other breaks for that matter! If this rings true in your home, The Tutoring Center, Houston TX has a post to share with educational games you and your family can play indoors during the cold weather.


Monopoly is a great game to play with your family because not only is it fun but it can also be a great way to maintain a basic level of math skills. By assigning the task of ‘The Banker’ to a youngster, you can help them to keep their basic math lessons fresh while enjoying a game. To make the game a little harder for their math brain, make small adjustments to the prices of the items. For example, if a property costs $150, change the price to $163, requiring your youngster to perform equations which are outside of the standard block additions and subtractions.


If you and your family enjoy being silly when you play games then you likely already play Charades. However, did you know that you can turn it into an educational game? Along with the regular cards which come with the game, sprinkle in some of your own cards with items related to your student’s learning. For example, if they are struggling with geography then you can include known monuments from around the world. Then, when they guess correctly, follow up with a quick question. For example, if the card was to emulate the Statue of Liberty, ask when it was opened or what it represents.
