Wee Kids Math
Wee Kids has a great variety of different games featuring kid-friendly favorites such as animal, insect and space-themed backdrops to get the children engaged. Out of all on the list, it does feature a few minor road-bumps such as a lack of instruction and also an annoyingly confusing similarity in the appearance of the 8 and 3 characters, but aside from these minor faults, it is another excellent example of how your child can play and learn at the same time.
Kids Academy – 123 Tracing
We all have to start somewhere and before you can get stuck into the great addition and subtraction games currently available you first have to know your numbers inside and out. Aimed at the very young 123 Tracing is a great introduction to numeracy. It begins at the start and gets your child interacting and understanding the numbers, what they mean, their shape and how to write them.
