Avoid the endless summer bummer with some fun, educational games

School’s out for the summer, and your kids are bored on day one of vacation. You don’t want them in front of the television for the next three months, and getting them to read is hard enough. Of course they can go outside, but not when it’s raining. Sound familiar? For those days where you can’t get your kids to do anything, why not give them a fun and educational game to play? CoppinsGifts.com has a few games for you to look at that will let your kids be creative and maybe even teach them something, too.

  • Junior Word on the Street Game: Here’s one that will really get their brain going. Each team gets a category (i.e. “Types of fruit”), and has to come up with an answer in thirty seconds so they can steal the letters from the word onto their side of the game board.
  • Bananagrams Game: It’s even fun to say! This fun game is a great way to get the whole family playing together. This amusing twist on a classic crossword puzzle will have your whole family scrambling to win—it’s a great fun and educational game. Your kids are sure to love it.
  • Reverse Charades: It’s the classic game that everyone loves, but backwards. Teams have a minute to act out as many words for one person on the team to try and figure out. This game will be a barrel of laughs for you and the kids to enjoy on a rainy day


So when school’s out and your kids are driving you up a wall, check out CoppinsGifts.com’s selection of games to give your kids something to do.
