It’s no secret all kids love to learn and be apart of fun and interesting things. They are born with that natural curiosity. They all go through the but why stage. Their little sponge-like minds desire knowledge. Many of them my children included want to try to figure out how things work. My son used to take random things apart when he was younger just so he could put them back together. He even used to do it in class! So, imagine how happy I was when I came across my first escape room game. I quickly discovered it was a great way for curious children to quench their thirst for knowledge.
Yes, you heard write and Escape Room Game. Some of you maybe wondering what exactly is an escape game? Escape game rooms are a puzzle-based attraction that you can do in real life or online. We had our first experience with an online version we got at Pretiful Designs and I can’t tell you enough just how much fun it was for the whole family.
The game is not only interesting but they also offer educational benefits for its players. And anyone who reads my posts often can tell you that I am ALWAYS looking for a way to incorporate education into everything. So just what other benefits does playing escape room games have on it’s players?
1. Learn how to make connections and think outside of the box
In escape games you’ve got a series of puzzles that you need to solve in order to win the game. So you have to see how everything is connected to be successful. The game is timed so that means you have to think fast and be on your toes. You and your team need to use logic and context clues in order to get ahead.
To be honest with you escape room games are designed for you to work together. So, if you find yourself constantly arguing over things I am sad to say you will not get anywhere. So my recommendation is before you start playing tell you child that to be successful they must set aside their differences and use each of your strengths in order to get through the room.
So, once this has been established the next thing to tackle is sharing information. Once your team achieves this you will see how together you all can come up with the right answer and escape from the room.
In a escape room games it is important that you ask questions to your teammates. This will help your child learn good question asking skills. As a teacher and mom I can tell you that asking for help is sometimes challenging for kids. Well, to be honest asking questions is hard even for some adults. That’s why playing a room escape game with your kids it’s great way to teach them how to ask for help. They will be able to see first hand that sometimes asking for help can actually help them get ahead.
