Board games and activities are a wonderful way, I realized, of learning and educating children with various skills and values. They get to learn through playing or solving a puzzle. This keeps the brain engaged and they do not feel like they are studying, but the kids are in turn learning something new. These skills also stay longer in their mind and they will be able to remember and associate these even after many years.
