Pegs by White Pixels is an Excellent Brain Game for Kids

The brain, like the other muscles in the body, needs constant exercise to stay sharp. Brain games are great for that. If you are looking for a good, wholesome game to train your mind, here is one that I enjoy: Pegs by White Pixels. Based on the classic game Peg solitaire, it's engaging for kids as young as seven years old.

Move the Pegs, Clear the Board

If you're not familiar with Peg solitaire, it's a puzzle consisting of a number of holes in a grid. The holes are filled with pegs, save for one hole in the center. Players can move the pegs via jumps, i.e., moving a peg over another into a hole. The jumped peg is then removed from the board. The goal of the game is to empty the board except for a solitary peg in the central hole.
