When was the last time you put together a good old fashioned cardboard puzzle? You should do it and your kids should too. Puzzles help kids develop spatial skills - which they need for tackling STEM subjects. Building puzzles also improves short-term memory as well as visual perception and coordination. And since you use both sides of your brain when you build puzzles, you pretty much get a full-brain workout. Yet at the same time, it can be quite relaxing and therapeutic. A relaxing workout? We’re in!
How about a different kind of College fun! Klask is an interactive board game that is like a fast-paced tabletop version of air hockey, but with multiple magnets and a small round ball. The players use the magnetic handles under the board to control their playing pieces, trying to hit the ball into their opponent’s goal - but be careful not to attract the small white magnets or land your playing piece in your own hole! We found it at Target. $40.00, www.klaskgame.com
