Here Comes Summer — How Will YOU Fight Brain Drain?

We just wrapped up gifted and talented for third grade, and this year was mostly about logic-brain games and the like. When the opportunity came to review IQ Steps from SmartGames, I knew this was something we definitely could use in our house! IQ Steps is recommended for ages 8 and up and makes a fantastic addition to our Summer Travel Toy & Games series.

IQ Steps Travel Game Review

This game was challenging for my third grader and for me! It required concentration and focus — and practice! After a couple of tries using the answers we were ready to tackle some of the challenges on our own.

This game is a great example of how your brain is a muscle and the more you use it, the stronger it is. Have two kids work together to solve a challenge, or use this game to keep screen time to a minimum. Chances are, the devices won’t even be missed! IQ Steps is a keeper for our house. There are instructions on how to arrange the pieces so that they fit into the covered game board and are convenient for travel. This would be a great car game or a waiting room game for older kids or adults.
