Educational games for your Crystal Lake preschooler

Posted on 10-07-2014


Though your child is learning a lot at preschool through play, there are plenty of educational games which can be played at home to extend the learning process. Educational games at home allow your child to learn instead of watching television or playing video games. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Crystal Lake, we have been providing accredited preschool services for many years, where we teach educational games that stimulate child brain development. We have compiled a list of educational and fun games for you and your child to enjoy at home.


This is an interesting and highly educational game that you and your child will enjoy. The game teaches your child about decision making, diplomacy, strategy and planning. The object of the game is togrow and develop a civilization and to negotiate and trade with other civilizations. Some activities include building banks, factories, granaries and universities. This game will teach your child about the economy and how the world works. Civilization encourages high level thinking and is a fun challenge. Older school aged children enjoy this game as well, and may be helpful in teaching your preschool child how to play.

Food count

This game is great for teaching your child how to count. What you will need:

  • Empty one dozen egg carton
  • Marker or pen
  • Small food items (cereal, chocolate chips or raisins)

How to play:

  1. Ask your child to write the numbers from one through twelve on the individual sections of the egg carton.
  2. Then have your child count out each number using the small food items.
  3. Have him fill the numbered sections with the correct number of items.
  4. As soon as the sections are filled, ask your child to count in reverse order. He or she can eat the items if counted correctly or you can share them all when the game is over.
