Did you know that playing Tetris is good for your brain? It is such a seemingly simple game, but playing it has some amazing benefits. So of course we had to create a printable Halloween version you can use with your kids for some screen free Tetris fun!
Benefits of Playing Tetris
There are a number of incredible benefits to playing Tetris.
It helps children learn gameplay and social skills.
Tetris also helps with brain development by fostering the development of problem solving and critical thinking skills. Our paper version is a great way for students to start learning the game as they have more time to think and problem solve, but once they become efficient they can move to digital versions that challenge kids to think fast to come up with the right solution.
Playing Tetris can be very calming for students. Yes it is a challenge, but it tends to be a very calming one for most kids. Especially with all the brightly coloured pieces. The process of imagining and figuring out the solutions for each piece is a fantastic quiet time activity.
Playing Tetris helps kids develop strong spatial skills, such as mental rotation, spatial perception, and spatial visualization.
Children with trauma history, PTSD and Developmental Trauma disorder may benefit from playing Tetris. There is some really interesting research going on into the benefits of Tetris when healing trauma: Can Tetris Prevent PTSD? Can Playing Tetris Reduce Trauma Flashbacks?

The benefits of the printed version is that it gives kids more time to work on the spatial skills and come up with the best solution. Plus it is screen free and a great quiet time activity.
