Nowadays even kids of 5 years old are learning to code. Learning coding boosts the computational thinking of a child only if they can truly understand the fundamentals of computing.
However, spending so much time in front of a screen can create a problem not only for their eyes but also for their mental health.
So here is an easy solution to inculcate computational thinking in our child - Playing /Designing Board Game.
Playing a board game with friends and families can be a stress buster. It is also a very effective tool for nurturing family bonds.
Moreover, a board game has many other benefits too. It helps a child to set a goal and breaking dowing the steps to reach the goal. It also helps in inculcating design thinking and problem-solving attitude in our kids.
