10 Homeschool Games to Inspire the Absorbent Mind

Absorbent Mind Development through Homeschool Games

One of the best ways to educate is through the use of games. Whether it be through board games, card games or hands-on fun games a child can learn through active play. The absorbent minds of children makes homeschool games the ideal way to learn.

Critical thinking, life role-playing, decision-making skills,not to mention, math, reading and creative thinking skills, can all be developed through homeschool game play. Game play can take the pressure away from learning, and make for a fun rainy afternoon. Or, when it’s so hot outside you could fry an egg. Oh wait, that might be a super fun experiment as well. 

But, it’s a lot cooler inside where the air conditioner is and you can have cold cups of ice water, or Kool-Aid, whichever floats your kids boat. So I think as steamy hot August rolls out… a fun family learning game around the table is just what’s in order for homeschool game fun.

“Our work is not to teach, but to help the absorbent mind in its work of development. How marvelous it would be if by our help, if by an intelligent treatment of the child, if by understanding the needs of his physical life and by feeding his intellect, we could prolong the period of functioning of the absorbent mind!” Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind.

 So I gathered together a listing of 10 games for homeschool students. These are games that will inspire learning in your children without them being overly aware of the learning process. These are fun games that can be played as a family but in the end you’ll all grow your knowledge.
