This one isn’t just for little Einsteins…

One undeniable fact about kids is that they love playing games. Here is some good news for parents who have a tough time getting them excited about maths. Now you can get your kids to do what they love best and get better at maths at the same time.

The following is a list of board games for kids aged eight and older and I encourage parents to join in with the fun. This is easier – and more productive – than Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It’s a pity that not all of these amazing games are available yet in Hong Kong but you can still enjoy them through Amazon.com. The prices indicated are the full prices but Amazon is giving great discounts on most of them.
