Why should kids play escape games?
In a previous post we talked about the reasons why a room escape game is addictive, in another about the fact that such a game is great for family time, but we never tackled the subject of such games for kids. Well, now it’s time to change all that.
As you know, kids love to discover and take apart things, to figure out how they work, so that’s why playing a room escape game is a great way for them to quench their thirst for knowledge.
Most parents know that if a child has energy they might just get tired before the child does and thus risk to get mad, annoyed, etc. A room escape game is great to unleash and consume a child’s energy, give him new things to do and also help him learn.
Since I’ve opened the learning subject, you might as well acknowledge the fact that it’s a great way for kids to learn, not just discover things. They’ll learn how to make connections, how to solve puzzles, enigmas and how to think outside the box.
Team work, here’s another great reason for kids to play room escape games: they’ll learn how to work in a group, how to behave as a team and most important, how to share informations. As a team they need to share their findings and see how they are relevant in finding the right answer and finishing the quest from the room they need to escape from.
Communication, that’s a basic trait that all kids should develop and trough a room escape game, while being in a team, they will learn how to communicate, how to share what they discovered and thus, finish the quest, the task or the puzzle.
In a room escape game even parents will learn how to ask a question, but kids will be facing some puzzles where they need to ask questions from their teammates. Like this they will learn the importance of a well placed question and how the answer can help them solve a puzzle, a mystery or even an entire room from where they need to escape.
Asking for help is sometimes quite challenging not just for kids, but event for grownups. That’s why playing a room escape game with your kids it’s great way to teach them how to ask for help and that sometimes asking for help might just be the key in getting ahead.
