  1. Education is important but games are also important for health and good mind. Every kinds of good works make a good student. thank you for giving a beautiful post. Keep it up.

  2. Education through games is not a very new concept. Actually we need to define the word education – is it study of concepts by cramming the definition or understanding the world, the surroundings and the nature? I belong to India, the land of ancient universities like Nalanda, where it is said that a sage told stories of “Panchatantra” to a naughty prince in his childhood to make him a great king and administrator. So education through games or stories is one of the best practices.

  3. I have a website focusing on road trip games but most are not very educational. Thank you for your post, would you mind if I put some of these games on my site.

    My website is called http://roadtripgames.net/ if youd like to check it out.

    Thanks

  4. Wow. I would’ve never thought of some of these games. Usually I just load on a few educational mobile apps on the phone or the tablet and hope that the kids will shut up for an hour or two. Such a great resource this. I might skip the read a book bit (because, you know, kids) and try those car travel games! Thank you for this!

  5. Great road trip ideas keep the kids engaged while in the car with fun travel games.

    Is there any apps on this?
