If you have multiple children then you have probably heard the whining and crying of the younger child who just isn’t able to play board games with his or her older siblings. I get the frustration they feel because the board games are too advanced for them to understand or play along with. But there are some great board games for preschoolers now, games that older siblings can play along with too.

We have a good-sized collection of games for our family. I say family in particular because Hubby and I have had a few of them since before we had kids.
The aim of the kids board game is to help the Queen Bee leads her 6 Worker Bees in the construction of their new honeycomb with 11 colored shapes. There are 46,656 possible solutions in the 37 hexagon spaces grid. It is the beginner version of "The Genius Square".... "Bee" genius!
Challenge a friend to rule the grid in Connect 4 Classic Grid, the game where strategy drives the competition! Line ‘em up and go for the win! Choose the gold discs or the red discs and drop them into the grid. When you get 4 discs in a row, you win. It’s simple, fast, and fun. Master the grid!
This adorable version of the classic Candy Land game features gingerbread men as movers, colored cards, and fun illustrations that kids love, with different destinations like Cookie Commons and the chunky Chocolate Mountain.
Get ready for some reel fun with this Let's Go Fishin' combo set, which includes a bonus Go Fish card game along with the original version of the well-known and well-loved fishing game that parents will remember playing when they were kids. Let's Go Fishin' teaches hand-eye coordination as players use their mini fishing poles to try to catch the most fish.
This game helps children practice their focus, memory, object identification, and matching skills, and promotes cooperation and teamwork.
