Summertime presents some problems, educationally speaking. The structure kids become accustomed to during the school year lessens, and there are plenty of studies that show kids often lose a bit of valuable knowledge over that three-month break. So how can you combat the brain drain without becoming an educational task master? Flash cards and games are a great place to start. Taking up such little space, the resources featured below can easily go with the family on car or plane trips. No pressure, no tests…just loads of fun. They may not even realize they’re learning.
