Memory games are a great way to train your brain while playing. They can increase a child’s concentration, improve brain power and help them with organizing and storing information – a skill they will rely on both in school and in their careers.
What are some of our favorites?
- Candy Land – This classic board game helps kids recognize and memorize colors and patterns.
- Memory Apps – The old-fashioned card game has several copies ready for your modern iPads and smartphones. (And there’s no cards to shuffle or clean up!)
- Simon – Remember Simon? You follow the patterns of lights and sounds for as long as you can remember.
