Board games for a 5 year old?
November 16, 2012 at 12:41 PM

What board games would you think would be great for a 5 year old? I want to buy some for my little boy for Christmas.

Right now we just have a little paper game he got when he was in the hospital once. You roll the dice, move your piece and do what it says (if anything) and he just LOVES it so I figure he'd like regular board games too.

Thanks for your help!

    My sons favorites at 5 were Uno jr, sequence jr, and yahtzee jr. Operation and jenga are always a ton of fun too though!

    Yeah, there are tons and tons of fun games! That's why I asked about board games specifically but I'm loving ALL the suggestions and making a nice list. =)
