    Default What Games Do You Have?

    I'm going to buy a selection of games for school-aged children and wondered what your mindees favourites are. I'd thought about Twister, Connect 4 and Guess Who. What others should I consider?

    Lotto games are good - alphabet and time. Also incy wincy spider or those pairs memory games (i.e. Noah's ark).

    Older children love top trumps and uno games and have a little hangman game too.

    we LOVE hullabaloo!

    guess who/connect 4/kerplunk/downfall/junior monopoly/junior scrabble

    lotto/soundtrack lotto on cd/pairs/top trumps

    snakes & ladders/dominoes

    tummy ache/crazy chef/incy wincy spider/slug in a jug/pop to the shops (all orchard toys games)

    we also have a 'in the night garden' hide and seek game where you turn cards over and children have to remember & tell you what has changed. a BIG favourite with the 3/4 yr olds!

    we play all of them, but get 'stuck' on a couple for a few weeks at a time! currently snakes and ladders, top trumps & tummy ache!

    My children love that one but it gobbles up batteries very quickly I've found. We also like pop up pirate and operation. Just got a multi-cultural lotto food game from the equal ops shop and everyone loves that!
