1. Concentration game

Depending on the age of your child, put random toys or objects in front of him and give him 30 seconds to memories them. Then cover them up and see how many objects he can remember. Increase the number of objects as your child’s memory improves, or reduce the time given to memories them for an extra challenge.

2. Puzzles

Puzzles are a fantastic way to develop a child’s hand-eye coordination, problem-solving skills, cognitive skills, fine motor skills, logical reasoning and spatial perception. And there are so many options to choose from, such as jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, Rubik’s cubes, Sudoku, scrabble, logic puzzles and tangrams.

3. Memory games
