Which is why finding education games for your kids is so crucial. Sure, you want them to have fun. But, you want them to learn a little something in the process.

Sudoku, would be a good choice for children that are looking to improve their logic skills.

2. Do they come highly recommended? Anyone can create a game and start selling copies, so you want to make sure that the game is kid and parent approved. Look for game suggestions on parenting and education sites, so that you know that you are getting the best bang for your buck.

3. Is it fun to play? The best educational games in the world won't do a whole lot of good, if your child doesn't want to play it. So make sure that the game is fun to play. Always sit down with your child and play the game a few times together before letting them play on their own. This will not only help you evaluate the game, but will help make sure that your child understands the directions properly.

4. Play together often. As with anything, the most learning usually happens when you are interacting with one another. So sit down with your child and play together! Talk about the choices that they make during the game, and have them explain why they did the things that they did. It will open up a dialog and make for a more educational experience.
