18 Fantastic Preschool Games to Play With Kids


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 how children learn,” says Dr. Tiff Jumaily, a pediatrician and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Parents can connect with their children through play and share in the happiness it brings them.

Preschool Games

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

One person chooses an object in the room and gives clues about what it is (“I spy with my little eye something that starts with the letter B”).

2. Simon Says 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).

One person is chosen as the stoplight and stands at one end of the room or yard.

4. Musical Chairs To play Musical Chairs, you will need one less chair than the number of kids playing.

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.
