Keeping minds active during the summer time so important, especially because school is finished for a long period of time. It's no secret that the brain needs exercise otherwise it starts to turn to slush. Many times at the beginning of the year it takes students a while to get back into the rhythm of things at school just because of the break.
Learning during the summer time doesn't need to be boring or feel like a chore. Below I've collected a few fun games that children will love to play during the summer time and keep their brains working without them knowing. I think these are a perfect way to spend some screen time over the holidays.
