Are Your Kids Bored After 5 Minutes in the Car?

Mine are. It doesn’t matter whether we are going 5 minutes down the road or an hour or two for a road trip, it never fails that my kids get bored and start searching for something to do in the car. Beyond the comics and library books, I needed something more to entertain my kids from point A to point B so they wouldn’t be annoying each other or whining that ever popular, “are we there yet?”

Educational Insights Math Trekker

Educational Insights’ Travel Games Go To the Rescue

We were sent 3 travel games from Educational Insights to review. Not only do these travel games keep my kids busy, but they also keep them learning, and in the case of one game, thinking creatively.

Educational Insights’ Math Trekker™ — Addition & Subtraction Plus Multiplication & Division

  • Grab, clip, & go — With a clip at the top, you can take this game anywhere. Clip to the sports bag to keep siblings busy when one child is playing a game. Bring it in the car for day trips. Clip to a book bag to use for free time at school.
  • Practice facts up to 12 — Depending on the model you are using, all you have to do is flip a switch between addition & subtraction or multiplication & division. It’s that quick and easy!
  • Solve math problems — The Math Trekker™ gives students a series of math problems to answer with easy-to-read numbers on the screen. Children are timed and complete the problems until they get all of them correct. The Trekker™ notifies kids after each question identifying if they got the problem right or wrong.
  • Multiple levels — Kids can determine the level they want to play on.
  • Runs on batteries — The Math Trekker™ runs on 3 batteries — the kind you find in hearing aids.
  • Fun alternative to flash cards — My kids loved this as a fun, alternative to using flash cards. They play for several rounds at a time, always trying to beat their previous record.
  • Good for younger kids too — Even my 5-year-old, is getting in on the action. When his brothers will let him have a turn, he’s more than eager to use it to start working on his early math skills.
  • Reasonably Priced — This game is not as expensive as many that are on the market.

Educational Insights’ Kanoodle Genius Game

  • Has its own carrying case — Kanoodle Genius comes in its own carrying case and as long as you can solve the brain-bending puzzle it contains the pieces nicely.
  • Has different shapes — Kanoodle comes with these circular pieces molded together into different shapes. Your challenge with Kanoodle is to crack one of the 200 ways to place them on the game board so they all fit perfectly.
  • Challenging for all ages — This travel game can provide fun and challenges for adults and kids. I have to admit it took me a while to solve it the first time. And yes I did snap a picture so I would have at least one way to solve the puzzle and close the container.
  • Has a game booklet — With the help of the game booklet, you can get started on so many different ways to build up the Kanoodle into 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional solutions.
  • Multiple ways to solve the game — My boys love this game and I love that there are so many ways to solve it. It’s like playing a new game every time. It’s no wonder why they ask for it every time we get in the car.
  • Good for younger kids too — Kanoodle is geared toward ages 8 and up, but again my 5 year old insists on playing as well.
  • Reasonably Priced — This game is not as expensive as many that are on the market.
