The Best Games for Homeschoolers

Pin this post

I love games for homeschooling! Our fun time can also be learning time if we pick the right one. Sure, there are plenty of educational websites and apps for kids, and we’ve found them super helpful over the years. We’ve found some fantastic digital back-up for geography and math.

But sometimes it’s nice to turn off the screens and just sit around a board or card game. Some of my favorite childhood memories are playing card games with my family. I play some of those same card games to build memories with my children.  And if a game also happens to reinforce a learning skill or concept, then that’s a double win!

Besides the obvious benefits, playing games together also helps develop and hone social skills, like verbal communication, taking turns, and sharing. Games also help with cognitive and memory development.

This is what you might call a master list of educational games. All ages and skill levels are represented so there’s a little something for everyone.
