One of the best ways to have fun as a family is to play games together. Whether you have a dedicated family game night or just love to play games whenever the mood strikes you’ll love these games. I’ve got a list of the best preschool board games for families.
These games are geared toward anyone ages three and up. As a parent of four kids I’ve play more games in the past 15 years than I liked but these are some of our favorites for the preschool crowd.
I have found that some games for preschoolers are too simplistic or just seem a bit pointless. I like a game to make you think a little. Though even games that don’t have anything educational usually help the little ones with their fine motor skills.
The best preschool board games are the ones that parents don’t mind playing as well. There is no point to buying a game that kids love but parents hate! I have to admit that a couple of the games I included aren’t my favorite (see: Monopoly) and I usually tried to steer the kids away from those. But the kids loved them so much I did end up playing them a lot. Sometimes we have to compromise!
Besides playing games there are other fun activities you can do with your family if you have a preschooler.
- Take a family hike
- Read the book then watch the movie
- Read a book aloud
- Outdoor messy art projects
- Outdoor adventures with kids
