Play Educational Games with Poki - and Win a Fire 8GB Tablet!

We're always on the look out for fun educational resources, and the range of great free games from Poki (over 20,000 of them - for free!) is ideal.  Admittedly, not all of those are educational ones, but there are lots that test typing skills, help with maths, literacy, geography and more.  (Although we may have strayed off brief and played the Scooby Doo one too...)  You can find all the games here.


Of the educational games, Lara really enjoyed the spelling ones, seeing how fast she could find and type the right letters and as her literacy and typing skills continue to improve, she will get even better of course.  Sophia really enjoyed the maths games in Matt vs Math, which start off simple but look like they could get really complicated as the stages progress.  We'll also be recommending the Tingly Brain trainer to my father-in-law who is keen on such things to protect against memory deterioration, Alzheimer's etc.




The one that really stumped us though was the geography game, where you have to identify all the European countries by clicking them on the map as the names come up.  We were all fine on the nearby bits, and all of western Europe, but pretty ropey on Eastern Europe and that south eastern bit that changed throughout the '90s.  Not great for someone who has spent so much time in the region!!  We got there in the end though, I just hope we still remember next time!  I'm not sure we'll be trying the US states one yet, best we conquer Europe first - as it were!

Let us know how you get on - I think I might challenge my friend Charlotte to get them all in one go.


Great for on the go, or during downtime, such as travelling over the Christmas holidays, these games have been bookmarked for future use on our gadgets.  But how fab would it be to have a shiny new Fire Tablet to play them on?!  Poki have generously offered just that for one Attachment Mummy reader to win.

  1. I would also give up on the American states - Europe would be OK for me though, but America!!!! I can identify all the main ones but a lot I sort of only know if West, East or Mid America!!!! Maybe Trump and Clinton got confused as well as they flew across America - I bet there was one who said "Hiya Wisconsin" when they were in Texas!!! or something like. Great prize though. :)
