Brain Quest: Educational Tools That Make Learning Fun!

Brain Quest Cards & Workbooks

Our family loves Brain Quest. We first got a deck of their Questions & Answers as a birthday present for our daughter when she was in preschool. We've been buying them each year ever since.

Their slogan is "It's fun to be smart!". I love that. In one little sentence it's letting kids know that it's cool to be smart, and that learning can be fun.

Each Q&A box contains two decks of cards, each held together at the bottom with a grommet. They slide open like a fan. Questions are on one card, with their answers on the next. When you get to the end turn the deck over and their are more questions and answers going back. Then move on to the second deck.

They are great for parents to use at home with their kids, for teachers to have in their classroom, or for friends to play together.

In addition to these cards, Brain Quest also has coordinating workbooks with hundreds of activities, exercises, games, and challenges in every subject, with emphasis on math and language skills.

These are awesome! We used to do these when my kids were younger. I forgot all about them. Thanks for the walk down memory lane.
