When the world of technology is taking over us moms need to get creative to find ways to get our kids to enjoy learning and want to at the same time. The Game Builder game does just that. It’s perfect for encouraging them to get creative and use their imagination while having fun. My oldest has said before when he graduates he wants to become a game programmer this game gets him the foundation he needs to get started but at a younger age. It’s also perfect for his siblings to learn some new skills in coding while having fun and that’s what is important. Nintendo gets that kids want to have fun but moms want them to learn and that is what Game Builder does!
