What Board Games Can 5-Year-Olds Play?
Family board games that keep a simple set of rules work best for 5-year-olds to play. Examples include classics like Tic-Tac-Toe and Snakes & Ladders. Make sure the chosen games don’t take too long to complete, so your 5-year-old doesn’t get fidgety or distracted. No more than a 15-20 minute game is a good bet. Also, games with very tiny pieces are best to save for a little while. Keep it sturdy while they are at such a young age (1).
