Checklist Of Games For 5-Year-Old Children

The Age
  • The developmental steps in the sixth year of life are very exciting for parents: the child becomes more and more independent, understands instructions and can occupy himself for longer and longer. In terms of cognitive, emotional and motor development, your child is making great progress. In addition, school enrollment is approaching soon. You can support your child’s development wonderfully with games.
The Upcoming Enrollment
  • Firstsimple learning games such as Wir spielen Schule (We play school) by Ravensburger or Schwungübungen (Swing exercises) from 5 years prepare children for the upcoming start of school. Learning games that help with reading and writing are already interesting now. Make sure the focus is on teaching knowledge through play.
  • Cognitive skills: Fun games for the whole family include Kakerlakak from Ravensburger. The classic board game provides lots of fun and action, and incidentally trains your child’s reaction skills. Ubongo Junior is also recommended: The entertaining tile-laying game is beautifully illustrated and promotes spatial imagination.
Social Development
  • An important part of learning and playing is social development. In parlor games, children learn to follow rules and how to resolve conflicts. A great parlor game is Monopoly Junior, for example. The game also trains the handling of money in a very playful way.
Motor Development
  • This is also progressing rapidly now. Your child is now constantly on the move and even catching the ball works quite well.
  • Fine motor skills are now dominated by either the right or left hand of your child.
  • Slowly your child learns to tie loops by himself.
  • To train your child’s fine motor skills, we recommend, for example, the game S.O.S Monkey Alarm – here fine motor skills are important, because the monkeys must not fall down!
Play Fun
  • With a 5-year-old child, you can already slowly approach”more difficult games”
  • However, the pure fun of playing should still be the main focus for 5-year-old children.
