The best children games for 5 years and older 2021

In 2021 looking for a good game for your child from 5 years? Our overview lists card, dice, and board games that can be played by kids (and adults) ages 5-7.

Board games bridge generations. Most of the games in this list are great fun not only for kids but also for adults. However, they only show their true potential when played together with children.

It is important that the needs and abilities of the children are respected and considered - sensible encouragement and challenge is required here. We have paid close attention to what five-year-old, six-year-old and seven-year-old children need and can do. The games listed here should neither under- nor overchallenge your kids.
