Hi all, Just joined.
My 4 year old daughter and i play a game called 'As Queen of the Land', we made this up. we make law and change laws of the land all the time. These range fron Laws of counting, coloring, travelling on the bus, making breakfast, playing games,you name it. this has got her thinking and coming up with new ideas all the time. one of the laws that doesnt chage is i am the bigger queen forever and she is the young queen of the land which is our world at home.

Rhyming games or change the words in familiar songs. (The sillier, the more fun.) What kinds of things would you find... in the bathroom? A kitchen? The library? In the car?

I played this game in the car with my 2 kids when they were 3 and 4yrs and still play to this day. It keep them entertained.
Game: Guess the animal. example. 1 person thinks of an animal and doesn' tell. Let's say it is a Rabbit. The others take turns asking questions like...does it have four legs? Does it fly? Does it have fur? Is it big? The person who guesses right has the next turn to think of an animal.
I always remind my kids that the animal has to be real. My son likes to make up animals.
Other variations are I have something in my pocket.
I'm going shopping and am buying something for Gramma or Grampa or whoever.

memory games. My daughter turned 5 this year but she loved to play the dora or princess memory or matching game. She also liked Uno.

some ideas are... the whats missing game..choose some objects then cover them over, take one away and your child guesses whats missing.

Sorting games..putting things if a certain colour, shape, texture into categories ..also sorting socks is helping and a learning experience :p

all board games, puzzles and lego type toys promote thinking. i bought my 4 year old the go fish card game she has had hours of fun playing that one.
