Best 18 Preschool Games To Play With Kids (Educational + Fun)

As a parent, you play an essential role in your child’s education, even before they start school.

One way to support your child’s development is by playing games.

Play is natural for children and supports their cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being.

Preschool Games

Here are eighteen games you can play with your preschooler to help them develop and have fun.

1. I Spy I Spy is a classic game that is a great way to build vocabulary and understand language.

2. Simon Says Simon Says is a great game to play to help your child practice following instructions. To play, choose one player to be Simon and have them give instructions to the other players, such as “Simon says touch your nose” or “Simon says stand up.”

3. Red Light, Green Light Squid Game may have disturbed us with its version of Red Light Green Light, yet this is still a great game to try with preschoolers (minus the massive bloodbath).

4. Musical Chairs To play Musical Chairs, you will need one less chair than the number of kids playing. The chairs are placed in a circle facing outwards. The players walk around the chairs while music plays.

5. Take an Online Class Give yourself a break from parenting and get your child to take an online class! Educational platforms such as Allschool offer engaging live video classes for kids as young as three.
