Building Brains games keeping education going for children during the summer

Games in the bag include ‘Musical Freeze’, which has children dance to music and when the music stops, they freeze in the same pose shown on an included card. ‘Red Light, Green Light’ help improve children’s working memory and helps them build emotional control. Another activity in the bag is a shared project, where two children work together.

Tickets are cheap and COVID-19 countermeasures are in place. Many schools, however, have already pulled out, and others are still on the fence, awaiting more information.
