  • Sorting clothes that no longer fit anymore. Dress-sorting sessions are a really fun and enjoyable alternative. Unpacking the contents of the wardrobe, sorting out which clothes do not fit. Usually, when sorting through, scenes of haggling between brothers and sisters will appear. Actually this is one of the best moments to build bonds between siblings.
  • Facial skin care at home. The idea to do this facial treatment initially arose because the youngest who entered puberty had acne syndrome on his face. Imagine, a man who doesn't care about appearance but two sisters is the type of woman who really cares about appearance. Then the eldest daughter provoked her younger sister to buy anti-acne products, one of which was a face mask. It's so funny, every time I see a boy with a mask on his face.

Well, here is my opinion after I tried some free games from plays dot org. Currently there are more than 150 games available and every day a new game is published, at least 1 or 2 additional games. Accessing it is very easy, just by clicking on the "free games" on the top header, automatically linked to the new free games menu every day.

No need to worry about how to use this game because in each type of game there are clear and easy instructions for playing it, including the strategy.
Free Game Catalog 

So far, I have tried some of the game menus available on the dot org game. One of them is TypeShift game. TypeShift has 50-level word spelling puzzle game where players move letter tiles up and down to spell a word.

TypeShift is like a puzzle game, so we are asked to arrange the available letters to form the right word, marked with a blue box. Although this game is actually for children, it is also suitable for those of us who want to enrich English vocabulary. 
Beside the TypeShift game, I also enjoy playing ball in the cup which is very fun for refreshing. And for those who want to motivate their children to love math, you can try the MATH GAMES category. 
This game for learning, which contains a variety of math-based games, can be a fun learning tool for teaching children about correct math concepts. With this game you can also avoid math fears from the start, helping children learn math naturally through fun play activities.

TypeShift of Free Games
Overall, is a great Free Games platform for kids, adults, and anyone who wants to spend more time on challenges. We can find many interesting free game items because this website has a very large variety of games, as well as various game categories to choose.
