Games suitable for 5 & 6 year old and up!
We at My First Games believe in recommending games to you only if they're not too boring for the adults to play again and again - coz we know that's what your kids would make you do. Which is excellent since you're spending quality time together, but can be a bit of a pain if the game is too boring for you. Hence, we do our research for you! We trawl and read the reviews on the many boardgame websites and view hundreds of youtube videos to shortlist good games on your behalf.
5 & 6 year old kids are now able to tackle the simpler games very well. They would enjoy the game knowing that they are good at it, and they would relish the win which they all eagerly seek.
As they know the game well, they know they can win on their own accord - ensuring that they would still want to play with the games which they played with while younger as these are more familiar to them.
This also makes game playing more fun and more interesting for you since you can really try your best in the game, to win your child, so that they know that they have to work for their victory instead of having Mummy & Daddy hand it to them on a platter.
Now is also the chance for you to instill gracious spirit of game-playing in the kids such that they will (1) not throw tantrums if they lose the game (2) learn NOT to jeer at their opponents when they win their opponent.
However, the 5 & 6 year old would not play the simpler games to death, like they did before when they were younger. Instead, kids at this age are developing very rapidly as well and they would love to try something new and they are willing to take on a new challenge.
They would also very likely show interest in what their older siblings and their parents are playing.
If a child is able, it is good to expose him to more complex games, to stretch him and challenge him.
