Making Learning Fun at Grandma and Grandpa's House

Does your grandchild spend a lot of time at grandma and grandpa’s house? In addition to growing a lasting bond between you and your grandchild (and free daycare for mom and dad), a major benefit is that you can have a direct impact on making learning fun!

We know it can be hard to come up with fun activities to do with your grandchild, so encouraging your grandchild to learn at grandma and grandpa’s house might seem counterintuitive. BUT, at Scholar’s Choice, we know how to disguise learning in fun games and activities. So, while your grandchild thinks they are playing an awesome new game with their fun grandparents, you know that they are growing their brains and that you’re having a hand in making learning fun! Here are 5 of our favourite toys to make learning fun at grandma and grandpa’s house:

POP for Sight Words Game (2 – 4 Players, Grades 1+)

If your grandchild is learning how to read, POP for Sight Words Game is the perfect to help recognize words and read them aloud correctly. Your grandchild will never notice that they are growing their vocabulary, and perfecting their pronunciation while playing a fun game with grandma and grandpa!

See and Spell Puzzle Melissa and Doug (ages 4+)

Spelling and puzzles have never fit together so well! Keep these 10 beautiful wooden puzzle cards at grandma and grandpa’s house, and when your grandchild visits they can strengthen their word recognition, dexterity, and early language skills!

Happy Hour Clock by Hape (ages 3+)

Teach your grandchild to tell time with the Happy Hour Clock so they always know how much longer they get to play at grandma and grandpa’s house! Happy Hour Clock will help your young grandchild learning the vocabulary of the clock including “quarter past”, “quarter to”. The rotating minute and hour hands rotate around the clock and the numbers can be removed and replaced in their proper place on the clock face.

Alphabet Lacing (ages 3+)

Strengthen your grandchild’s little fingers by practicing fine motor skills with the Alphabet Lacing Cards. These fun cards have an illustration on the front and a large letter on the back which will help with letter recognition! Grandma and grandpa can help string the entire alphabet together all while making learning fun!

Trend Wipe-Off Books

These fun books cover a range of subjects for your grandchild including colours and shapes and the alphabet! Pages and pages of engaging activities will help your grandchild recognize the patterns and differences in shapes and colours and strengthen letter and sound recognition! These books also have wipe off surfaces so the fun never needs to end!

Shut the Box (ages 6+)

This dice game for 2 or more players is a Scholar's Choice classic! After your grandchild rolls the dice they will have to count up the total and then "shut" a combination of the open numbers that equals the total! In addition to strengthening counting and math skills, your grandchild will learn how to win and lose graciously.

Bonus! If you want to incorporate French into your grandchild’s life we absolutely love Zingo! for ages 4+. Don’t worry, you don’t need to know French yourself to teach it to your grandchild! Players can learn English and French at the same time with this bilingual game by combining words and spelling to cover up their Zingo card. The whole family can get in on the bilingual fun and your grandchild will never know that they are learning a new language, improving short-term memory and recognizing patterns!

For even more French fun try Jeux de Lecture! This 6 in 1 educational game will help your child with their French vocabulary, and sentence structure! Puzzles and matching games makes Jeux de Lecture continuously fun and different to keep your grandchild engaged for hours!
