Birdcage Press's Profile Photo

Play favorite games, learn about art , history, aviation , and wildlife.

A “thank you” to Birdcage Press for allowing me to review a few games from their ART category.

ツ Go Fish for Impressionist Artists. Play a game of Go Fish by trying to collect four paintings from each artist. (Other memory games, too) Learning skills include memory, concentration, visual processing, strategic thinking, and art appreciation. A great supplement to your art curriculum.

ツ Art Close Up: Museum of Modern Art. Memory and Old Maid are two of several games that can be played with this deck of art cards. Learning skills include art appreciation, memory and matching, and pattern recognition. I love playing Old Maid this way! Another fun addition to your art studies.

American Art Ditto

ツ American Art Ditto. “Discover America’s greatest artists as you match up pairs of art tiles. Then collect your winnings on 8 art collecting cards that show the beauty and grandeur of life in America”. Having an art collection card where your matching art tiles go is a clever way to add to the classic Memory game. An effortless way to learn the names of the artists and their works.

BirdCage Press offers many more educational games and resources for history, wildlife and nature, art and air & space. Highly recommend! I encourage you to take a look at their site. And to read more about Birdcage Press – a group of five amazing women.
