These are a few of our favorite games…
We play a lot of games at our house. Because I stayed home with our kids full time, we had a lot of free time when they were little. They wore out a few of the games we played in their preschool years. Some of these don’t appear to be mass produced anymore, but if you see one at a garage sale or thrift store, snag it. They kept my kids busy for hours!

Chutes and Ladders (Ages 3 and up. Up to 4 players.)
Candy Land (Ages 3 and up. Up to 4 players.)Puppy Pals Bingo (Ages 3 and up. 2 or more players.) This is a twist on bingo with colors and shapes included in the mix. I love that this game is very durable. This one is still on our shelf and gets pulled out regularly by my youngest. This appears to be out of production, but keep your eyes open for a used set.
Guess What I Am (Ages 3 and up. 2-6 players.) This game is similar to headbands. My kids crack up when their dad gets the ballerina and puts his face in the hole.
Rummikub, Disney Edition (Ages 4 and up. 2-4 players.) There is a regular adult version of Rummikub as well. I vividly remember watching my mom play rounds of Rummikub with my grandparents when I was little. (Ages 8 and up. 2-4 players.) The Disney version is great for younger kids learning the concepts of matches and runs.
Hullabaloo DVD Game (Ages 4-6. Multiple players.) This is one to buy used as it doesn’t appear that it is being produced anymore. My kids played this over and over and over. There is a Hullabaloo audio version only that is fun as well. It appears to be out of production as well.
Connect 4 (Ages 6 and up. 2 Players – Again, I think kids younger than the stated age can play this game.)
Sorry (Ages 6 and up. 2-4 players.)
Uno (Ages 7 and up. 2-10 players.) Kids younger than 7 can definitely learn to play Uno. Luke was whooping me at around 4 years old.
Spot it (Ages 7 and up – my kids have been able to master this game from about five and up. They aren’t as quick as their older siblings though, so that can be frustrating. 2 players.) This is a matching game. Each player flips a card and the players have to find the one picture that matches on each card.
