Yahtzee An Educational Game

Yahtzee An Educational Game

Education can be "hidden" in​ a​ lot of​ toys and games. When you think of​ educational toys and games for your children don't overlook some of​ the obvious ones.

Today we will talk about Yahtzee, most say it​ is​ all in​ the luck of​ the roll. That maybe true but there is​ some logic involved as​ well. Do you use four ones for your four of​ a​ kind or​ do you try for sixes instead. Do you go for your large straight when you have a​ 2, 3, 4, 5, or​ do you try in​ when you have a​ 1, 2, 4, 5?

But besides the logic there is​ basic addition. Learning to​ count by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, and 6's. Then of​ course you need to​ total up the score.

The game of​ yahtzee doesn't take long and even if​ you are playing with a​ younger child that cannot add up the final scores just the exposure to​ counting by 2's and 5's for example will help them understand math concepts later on.

Yahtzee is​ also great because it​ doesn't matter how many players you have, and you can even play by yourself and try to​ top your best score.

Then you must not forget the sheer pleasure of​ spending time with your children doing something enjoyable. Children flourish when attention is​ spent on them. You don't have to​ plan an​ expensive trip to​ the amusement park to​ spend quality time with your children, just doing something that is​ enjoyable to​ both of​ you and giving them your attention is​ often enough.

Start your children young introducing them to​ different concepts such as​ addition, reading, etc. Young children love to​ learn and you will most often find a​ willing pupil that is​ excited to​ learn new things, especially when it​ is​ their favorite teacher instructing them, you.
