Logical reasoning may seem like a daunting task, but it is essential to apply logic and reasoning to real life situations. Let me give you an example about what happened with me. Last month, I was on a vacation and visiting a new place. I was unaware about the routes so I was totally dependent on the directions displayed on my GPS (Thank god for Google Maps). Now as I moved forward, my GPS directed me to turn left and without using my presence of mind or any logic I turned left and got stuck between two narrow lanes with a dead end. Oops! What if I had used my presence of mind and logic instead of totally depending on GPS? I am sure the scenario would have been a little different. Don’t you agree? You see this, the reason why it is extremely important to cultivate logical reasoning in your child so that he doesn’t meet a dead end like me and nothing is better than acquiring the skills during your summer vacations. In this article, we have analysed how learning logical reasoning helps you during your summer vacations. So without further ado let’s drive into it
Optimum Utilization of Time
Being a student summer vacations are the most awaited time of the year. You make hundreds of plans with your friends. Since there is abundance of free time; there are high chances of wasting it in unconstructive activities. Learning logical reasoning provide a fun and stimulating sequence of activities which children enjoy. These activities will keep them engrossed in learning something new, which will benefit them in their daily life as well.

Develops Critical Thinking Skills
Learning logical reasoning enhances your critical thinking skills and problem solving skills and helps you to think out of the box. So what’s better than learning it during your vacations? When you will grow up you would be better equipped to solve these problems. You won’t accept everything you hear at face value, rather you will think and analyze the problem and tackle it yourself. Furthermore, learning logic is more than just using a logic curriculum. It encompasses all of life. When we talk about learning logic, we’re talking about a life-style of good thinking.
Let’s be honest, we all know completing holiday homework at times gets tedious and monotonous. So to beat this boredom what’s better than playing some old-fashioned games such as checkers, chess, dominoes, and card games, such as rummy and bridge. Modern games such as Uno, Rummikub, Scrabble and strategy games like Risk. These are some of the enjoyable ways to beat boredom and learn some reasoning and logical skills during your best time of the year i.e., your summer vacations.
Helps in your Studies
We cannot simply say that our studies are devoid of logical reasoning. In a high school geometry class, there is a large emphasis on reasoning and proof. When writing a proof for any given geometry theorem, however, there is no “one size fits all” solution or algorithm. You have to understand the structure of proofs, and then you have to write out a solid mathematical argument for why it is in fact true. Hence, we know Maths is logical. Moreover, even in Physics you need to apply your logic while solving the equations. So, when after the summer vacations your school gets re-opened you will be familiar with some of the topics.
A Good Exercise for Brain
Learning logical reasoning is a very good exercise for brain. It helps to stimulate the brain, as well as aid in memory and concentration. A lot of patience and concentration is required when you are solving a logic puzzle or brain teasers. These activities help your brain to tackle situations in a logical manner moreover, helping you to focus on a single problem one at a time.
So as parents and students don’t you think summer vacations is the best time to inculcate logical reasoning skills in your child and make him utilize his time in a constructive manner that will have a positive effect on his life. In fact it assists in enhancing his critical thinking skills and problem solving skills and helping him to think out of the box.
