Single-player games are an integral part of our homeschooling and even daily life. Turn to single-player games when:

  • You need to keep one child occupied while you work with another.
  • Someone wants to play games, but no one else wants to.
  • Kids need to be kept silent (have a baby napping?).
  • Someone needs to calm down. Using the logical parts of our brain helps us disengage our over-wrought emotions.
  • Screens are too stimulating.
