Roll-It Tick Tac Toe

Children of this age are able to match colors, count and move board pieces independently.  Losing can still be a challenge for children in this age group and it is wise to talk about the experience of winning and losing.  Turn taking, social interaction and simple problem solving will enhance your child’s communication skills as well as teach him life learning skills. Here are a few games that will require good language skills, fine motor ability and cognitive flexibility.

For more ideas for this age group, refer to My Baby Compass, Four to Seven in Chapter 5 for other fun and interesting activities you can do with your child.
