Back To School Children’s Group Games

As children return back to school, they’re super excited to see their teachers and classmates again. That’s why it’s great to incorporate games that can be played together by the whole classroom! Educational games that get everyone involved are a great way to learn in the process of having fun. Engaging with classmates can help to develop children's communication skills, vocabulary and confidence, all whilst boosting their imagination. Whether it’s role playing in dress up costumes, puppet games or magic sets, BrightMinds have a great variety of educational games to get the whole classroom involved!

Outdoor Games For The Whole Classroom

Getting children outside during their time at school is a great way to let off some energy, all while reaping the benefits of the fresh air and sunlight. We might yet be able to squeeze some good weather out of September, so bringing games outside is a great way to keep little ones entertained when the sun decides to come out. Providing them with space to run and jump outside is a great way to develop their coordination skills, all while improving their general health through exercise. Whether it’s a parachute game, garden draughts or a sports day set - we know your little ones will love it!

STEM Toys For Back To School


STEM Toys are a wonderful way to educate children about Science, Technology, English and Maths, all while still having fun! Whatever topics you may be teaching at school, STEM Toys are great to use in the classroom. Children learn best from experience, so providing them with a practical, fun task to complete is the best way to help them store all of that knowledge. Using educational toys is a great way to develop problem solving skills, critical thinking, creative innovation and general intelligence. Whether you’re looking for a lab kit, times tables resources or spelling games, BrightMinds provide great games to align with the school syllabus.

Kids Puzzles And Kits For Play Time

It’s always great to have a variety of games for children to choose from at play time. Picking a game of their choice enables them to develop areas of interest in their spare time. Children’s puzzles and kits are a great way to get children to communicate with one another, whilst also helping to develop their hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and problem solving skills. Teachers are also able to get involved and oversee the games, whilst children are given leadership and responsibility over the game they have chosen to play. Whether it’s a classic jigsaw puzzle, board game or a more advanced kit that needs to be assembled, this is a great way to incorporate fun and education into play time!

Children’s Books For All Ages
