  1. I really liked all the different puzzle games which you have shared for kids to keep them engaged for long hours. Great way to promote critical thinking as well as decision making capabilities of kids while enjoying these fun games. I think it is important to teach coding for kids at an early stage due to the growth of technology to create better opportunities for the future. With the help of coding apps & games educating kids about basic concepts of coding has become relatively easy. The puzzle games can be a great start for kids to develop their minds to think creatively. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful list of games with us.
