Back to school is looking very different this year with continued online learning and limited extracurricular activities. Keeping kids connected, even virtually, is more important than ever before. Jackbox Games has a collection of educational games which can serve as the perfect after-school virtual play date to keep your kids socially connected with their friends. 

Jackbox Games, known for their party games, has several interactive educational games that are easily played together or remotely via Zoom, perfect for parents looking for a fun way to keep their kids connected without feeling guilty for letting them play a video game.

Jackbox Games

Some of the best educational and fun Jackbox Games include: 

Dictionarium: a silly game of making up new definitions for gibberish words like “flonx” or fake expressions like “fish shrugging” – also a helpful tool for teaching kids about synonyms and sentence building!

Drawful 2: a hilarious drawing game for people who can’t draw.

Patently Stupid: the game that will turn you into a modern Tom Edison!

Quiplash 2: the gut-busting battle of wits and wittiness – now parents can even create their own questions for a themed playdate.

Role Models: The offbeat personality test Role Models (3-6 players). Find out who you really are. (Or at least what your friends think of you.)
