2013 Holiday Gift Guide: Educational Games from SimplyFun


Who doesn’t love game night? Much like gathering around the dinner table, playing games as a family is a great way to connect with your kids, strengthen family bonds, spark conversation, and learn…all while having fun at home!

When it comes to board games, we all have our favorites – but how about something new? Something specifically designed to educate as well as entertain?


Have you heard of the award-winning educational board games company SimplyFun, LLCSimplyFun develops unique and engaging board games that support the educational needs of today’s kids, parents and teachers. SimplyFun games are recognized for their easy-to-learn concepts, interactive components and specific skill-building features, that help children from toddlers to teens with language, science, math, geography and more, and are fun for the whole family. If you’re a homeschooling family, these games are designed to help you with all kinds of lessons for all ages.

We’ve been playing Kilter, a game of balance that teaches physics (as well as a good dose of patience and self-restraint. Valuable for a 4-year-old!)

Kilter is an entry-level introduction to levers and predicting outcomes. Each player tries to safely distribute weighted cubes onto the precariously balanced seesaw. If it tilts, your turn is over – and you have to take any pieces that fall! This game also teaches patience – reinforcing when to resist that impulse to press your luck too far! It helps develop and refine fine motor skills, too.

There are tons of other games that I think my son would love, many featuring Tibbar, the company’s bunny ambassador. There are games about animals, gardening, nature, nutrition…all the things we love to learn about! And as he grows, the selection of age- and stage-appropriate games will grow with him. We’ll always know where to go for the perfect gift!

    What a fun looking game! I will have to check our local toystore for this one. Our after school program is looking for game donations for christmas too. This would be a great one!
