The Best Preschool Board Games & Card Games

My children love to play games. Over the years we have gone through quite a few games. Some we play once or twice but then give away because the children don’t seem to care for them very much. Others become quick favorites that we play for years.

Playing board games with little kids can help with so many important skills:

  • Social skills
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Imaginative play
  • Memory skills
  • Sight words
  • Letter recognition
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Color identification
  • Spacial awareness

Today I wanted to share a list with you of our favorite board games we have kept over the years. These are preschool board and card games that my littles have loved! They are the ones that have been the most popular at our house with younger players.

I would highly suggest them as great gifts for the toddlers and preschoolers in your life!
