Why are educational games for kids beneficial?
With children increasingly spending more time in front of screens, educational games get kids away from technology and back to basics. Educational toys can help:
- Develop problem-solving and decision-making skills
- Encourage critical thinking as well as judgement and reasoning abilities
- Improve hand-eye coordination
- Improve focus, concentration and attention span
- Improve memory function
Maths Bingo - Add and Subtract
Who will get a lucky number seven? Maths Bingo - Add and Subtract engages kids as they practise their addition and subtraction. To play, one player takes the role of the announcer and the boards are distributed amongst the players.
When the announcer has picked a card and reads aloud the number, players then need to look on their board for an addition or subtraction exercise with a value corresponding to the number called out. The first player to call the correct exercise collects the card and covers the corresponding equation on their board. Maths Bingo - Multiplication and Division is also available. Shop Now
