School is starting very soon and we have ideas for some fun back-to-school/educational games by our friends at Pressman Toys and JAX Games.
Learning should always be fun and something kids and adults enjoy. We love games that can help reinforce skills that children have taken a break from over the summer.
(For 2-4 players, ages 8 and up) – https://www.pressmantoy.com/product/rummikub/
Rummikub is ideal for people of different ages to play together, and it’s great for a game night too. When kids play, it reinforces STEM and STEAM concepts such as sequencing, pattern recognition, and planning skills. It’s got lots of exciting moments, but it’s also designed to bring people together, with plenty of opportunities for talking, chatting, and sharing with family and friends.
*Rummikub has always been one of my favorite games to play with. When I was about 8/9 years old I remember playing with my grandma and mom. It is a family tradition I look forward to continuing with my mom and my daughters.
