Playing games with your toddler or preschooler doesn’t have to be boring.

Let’s face it, some of the games for toddlers are terribly boring for parents.  I know learning to match things is an important milestone, but I can only find the purple dinosaur so many times!

To help with the monotony, I have found some entertaining games both you and your child can enjoy.  Some of the games are great for outdoors, birthday parties, family game nights, and summer holiday parties while others are more traditional board games. The latter would be fun for your indoor family game nights or fun for a rainy day.  Speaking of rainy days, take a look at the mess-free obstacle course post for some indoor fun!
