by BecSorby (follow)
Discover the joys of learning through play with Cognastics!

How would you like to play games with your children, knowing that they are also learning while having fun? Cognastics has a huge range of games all designed for the whole family to learn through play.

Cognastics is a small family business dedicated to designing evidence based cognitive development flashcard games to help parents, carers and children learn and come together through play.

The range of flashcards are designed to develop:
Abstract Reasoning
Emotional Intelligence
Inhibitory Control
Numerical Reasoning
Verbal Reasoning - including introducing a second language
Working Memory

Whether you are playing with a young child or a grandparent, Cognastics has something for you.

So how do the cards work?

There are cards for every aspect of cognitive development, and these can be incorporated into every day life.

For example, use the individual number cards to count out different objects around the house, or play ‘Snap’ with the number cards to have some family fun while learning!

You could also use colour cards to label various items in your home, or to sort out objects you have brought home from a nature walk, and use the division cards to cut a sandwich into pieces. The possibilities are endless!

The cards are designed to be open-ended resources and have been developed by parents Shannen and Mark, who are parents to young children and are big supporters of play-based learning.

Because of this, Cognastics games were not created as a ‘work-like task’, or as something that must be done every single day.

Although each card set is designed with a certain game in mind, the idea is to incorporate them into child-led and independent play so that your children can learn in a relaxed environment. 
Cognastics is the ultimate way to have some family fun time while learning as you go! For more information, check out the website, or follow them on Facebook or Instagram.
