Brain Quest: Flashcards for Preschool and Kindergarten

Brain Quest Pre-School FlashcardsChildren learn naturally through exploration and discovery, not through flashy gadgets and gizmos.  The best way to encourage a life long love of learning is to share that journey with your child.

Brain Quest from Workman Publishing makes a series of flashcard games for children as young as two to encourage parent-child interaction.

There are two packs of cards, each joined at a corner so you do not have to worry about losing individual cards.

We checked out the Brain Quest for Threes and had a lot of fun playing these pre-literacy and early skills games together. As a parent, I want to play games and help my child learn, but I may not always know where to begin.  Brain Quest provides parents with a great start, with plenty of age-appropriate visual and written cues.  Once you get started, you’ll find yourself inventing new games with your child.  The point is not to be right or wrong, but to just get thinking and talking–no batteries required.

The games are designed mainly as a jumping off point, so whether your child is ahead of the curve verbally or is taking her time, these cards will work at the kid’s level. You can have even more fun with features like Stump the Genius at

WANT IT: Brain Quest for Threes is available for $10.95.

WIN IT: Five lucky winners will receive their choice of Brainquest for Twos, Threes, Preschool, OR Kindergartern.  Just leave us a comment by September 15, 11:59 PM EST, letting us know which one you would choose if you win AND sharing a game you like to play with your child. Shipping US only.

    I have a preschooler and a kindergartener, so I’d love to win either of those sets. Games we like to play around here are Disney Princess Bingo, The Wheels on the Bus, ISpy, My Little Pony Memory, Hungry Hungry Hippos, and last but not least Candy Land. We really get in to family game time even though our daughters are so young. My husband and I wanted to start the habit early on, and our girls are our life. :)

    The ages 4-5 set. We like to play cartoon trivia when in the car. We all take turns asking a question about our favorite cartoon shows. These games sound like they’d be a fun addition to car games we play :)

    I would love to win Brain Quest for Twos for my toddler! His older brothers loved the preschool and older ones, but I didn’t even know they made them for twos.

    One of my favorite games to play with my toddler now is “Ride a Little Pony,” where I bounce him on my knees while saying a little rhyme with those words, and at the end I say “Don’t fall down!” and make him “fall” through my legs while I’m still holding him…he laughs and laughs and wants me to do it over and over! My older kids love playing guessing games like 20 Questions.

    I would like Braiquest for 2’s. I like to play candyland with my kids.

    I would love to have the 2-3 year old set! My almost-3-year old daughter loves flashcards, and my 8-month old son would be able to use them when he is old enough, too. My daughter and I play a game called “What’s Missing?”: we put out 4-5 objects, then take turns taking one of the objects away while the other person closes their eyes (no peeking!) and then has to guess what’s missing. This game is especially useful on long car rides, where I hold up objects from my purse, and in restaurants while waiting on food to arrive (we use the colored sugar packets–which is missing: the blue, yellow, pink, or white one?).

  15. I truly liked your post. Thank you Once again. Cool.
