Rush Hour Puzzle
ThinkFun Rush Hour Traffic Jam Brain Game and STEM Toy for Boys and Girls Age 8 and Up – Tons of Fun With Over 20 Awards Won, International seller for Over 20 Years
I bought Rush Hour Puzzle game to add to our home school classroom. I felt we were missing something. Furthermore, I have 2 boys on the autism spectrum. How do I teach patience, to try something new, to accept failure and try again? What do I do about fear of failing? What do I do with a perfectionist who is afraid to try? How do I teach mastering something takes much trial and error? How do I teach lengthening attention span? This series of games does just that.
The games start very simple and to master it takes lots of practice and many mistakes. We had many meltdowns in the beginning. The games teach you to think a certain way and starting at the beginning and working your way through, you start to figure it out. The games for us just didn’t entertain, they helped me teach valuable life skills. We own so many of these companies games for this very reason. Each game has its own unique thinking skill niche.
My favorite thing it teaches after we finish each series, I ask was it hard? The answer is always yes. Then I follow up, were you able to do it? My kids are learning that doing things that are hard is possible with patience. I thank Think Fun for this skill and their wonderful games.Promised Review by homeschool mom of 4
