Preschool Games

You can never have too many preschool games, my 4 year old loves to play games and I also enjoy the one on one time it creates for us.  I was recently able to review a game from Educational Insights called Grandmas Trunk Alphabet Game.  I couldn’t wait until she came home from school to play it with her.  The game comes packaged in a small trunk with 2 sets of cards.  Alphabet cards (26) with a picture on one side and the same picture on the other side with the upper case and lower case letter on it.  The other set of cards are riddles, each on describing one of the letters.  She’s in preschool, so I knew she wouldn’t have a problem recognizing the letters and she breezed through the letters.  There are 5 games you can play with Grandma’s trunk and each of them is very fun and interactive.  What Comes Next?: Is a game where each player takes turns putting the cards in the trunk in alphabetical order.  This one was a little tricky for her, she knows her letters and can sing them but putting them in order was a challenging but fun activity.  Memory time: Is a memory game where you need to repeat the order of the cards in the trunk and then add your own.  This was pretty challenging for me as well, you really need to pay attention.  Grandma’s Riddles: You deal the alphabet cards out and then read one of the riddle cards.  The you try to find the card that answers the riddle.  Letter Sequence Memory: Deal the cards out and each player takes turns placing them into the trunk in alphabetical order repeating all the previous cards. This was a great game because it really is helping my daughter to figure out the sequence of the alphabet. Grandma’s Adventures: Is a game where your make up stories with the cards, you place them into the trunk and each player takes their turn picking one to create a story.  This is super fun and the story ends up being pretty funny.

Riddles For Preschool Kids

My daughter’s favorite game was Grandma’s Riddles, I never realized how fun riddles for preschool kids could be!  We put a little twist on this game and the first time I just read the riddles and didn’t show her the alphabet cards.  I wanted to see if she would get the concept.  I must say I was blown away that she knew almost all of them.  I think I had to help her with about 4-5 which I thought was pretty impressive.  Grandma’s Trunk has become a household favorite and we have even started bringing my younger daughter in on the fun.  We show her the alphabet cards (without the letters) and repeat the name.  So far she can recognize and say apple, egg and cake.  The quality of the game was great, the trunk is a heavy duty cardboard its not flimsy at all.  The cards are stiff and coated for wear but they are NOT waterproof (my little one wanted to eat her cake).  You can purchase this game for $14.99.  It’s for ages Kindergarten and up.
