Created by Hema Gayatri Updated on Dec 20, 2019
Children are curious about many things around them. They are explorers of this world and have a natural liking for learning. 3 to 5 years is the stage when the child’s brain undergoes rapid development. Children in this age group have to be exposed to several games that make their brains work.
We can find several games involving logic available in the market and may choose from them if we can afford to. The best brain games are the ones that are played for many generations. The present-day board games are just a modification.
Here are 7 best brain games for children between the age of 3 to 5 years:
1) Building blocks
Blocks could improve the creativity of your child. Children can explore and construct whatever their brain thinks of doing. The building block is one of the best games to play right from the age of 3.
Get enough picture puzzles that could make your child think. The puzzle is the best brain activity that would make your child intelligent and creative.
3) Simple Tic Tac toe
As a child, we all would have played the game with the X and Os. It is the best brain game that teaches the kids about win or loses strategy. This game is available in play store and all digital medium, but it would not equal to the game physically played.
4) Memory games
Memory is the best exercise for kids. Memory starts developing right from birth and children realize what they learn to start storing in their memory by age 3. So, the best game that should be played is remembering the objects game. Show some objects and take them. Make the child recall them after 5 minutes.
5) Hide and seek
In the urban environment, the best way to play hide and seek is by hiding the objects and making the child find it. We can get creative and hide more objects instead of one to make the child find it. It helps the children to learn the concept of guessing and it develops logical thinking skills.
6) Word games
The alphabet cards must be given to the children right from the time they are thorough with all the 26 alphabets. We must start teaching the spelling of simple words through games. Miss some letters in the word and let them find it as you spell the word for them.
7) The maze game
Solving mazes is quite different from puzzles. The ability to solve maze develops problem-solving skills. It teaches the children about scanning and finding the solution. Children could understand the route they walk in their locality on solving different mazes.
Ultimately, it is our choice. We may head to a store and get enough toys that would help develop the brain of the child or we may get creative and discover games that help in brain development. Either way, we should engage children in activities that help in their brain development.
