Kids love to play games, and parents love for their children to learn. So what’s better than games that help children learn? Many children catch on to spelling and math concepts a lot easier if they think they are NOT learning (when in fact you know they are)! There are several ways to make learning more fun too – not just boring paper and pencils. Learning can be interactive, fun and imaginative and does not always have to have that “classroom” atmosphere.

We’ve looked high and low to bring you some terrific DIY learning games suitable for a variety of ages. Scroll through the images below and you’ll be sure to find something your children will love! We really like #12 for those kiddies working on their spelling (go Scrabble!)… and check out #17 to help your young ones know what time it is.
