The Top 10 Holiday List line up for the week is games! Oh, I LOVE games and game nights and all the fun that comes with it! (Yes, game night was just Day 17 in the Family Full of Thankfulness series)! This is probably my favorite week of Top 10 lists… and I am especially excited that I found a couple new games that I can’t wait to try with the boys!
Makeovers & Motherhood has teamed up with some friends to bring you 6 weeks of Top 10 Holiday Lists to help you pick the perfect gifts! I hope you will find this useful as you work through your shopping lists and that it gives you a fun new way to spend quality time together!
Please join us as we share with you are favorite books, games, building toys, pretend play toys, crafting supplies or kits, and stocking stuffers (without food)! Each participating blog will create their own list each week for each of the categories so be sure to see what everyone has to offer (the list is at the end of this post!) Happy Holidays!
makeovers & motherhood top 10 games for preschoolers
I’ve once again combined the top selling and best rated games for preschoolers from Amazon and Toys R Us and combined them with our family’s favorites to create the Makeovers & Motherhood Top 10 List of Games for Preschoolers!
Your forest friends are hungry in The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game and they need your help! Spin the spinner, squeeze the matching colored acorn with your Squirrel Squeezers, and place it into your log. Be the first to fill your log with delicious acorns and you win! You could also spin pick an acorn, steal an acorn, or lose an acorn, so be strategic, little squirrel!
Develops matching, sorting, strategic thinking, hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, and pre-handwriting skills.
A cooperative game combining a race across Busytown, with searching for specific objects on the map (flags, ladders, etc.). The more you find, the faster you move!
Encourages teamwork, promotes attention to detail, and reinforces object identification and matching skills.
A favorite for more than 50 years! Roll the Cootie cube, be the first to build a three dimensional “cootie” bug from plastic body parts to win!
Perfect for younger children because there is no reading required. Helps children with number recognition.
This fast-paced game combines strategy, speed, and fun for the whole family! Be the first one to get all your ants into the dog’s pants to win!

Be on the lookout for the one (and only one) land, sky, or sea animal that matches between any two cards.
Sharpens kids’ visual perception and cognitive skills.
A fast-paced variation of bingo where players try to fill their Zingo cards with matching picture tiles. The first player to fill his or her card wins!
Teaches shape and pattern recognition, and improves observation and short term memory skills.
Jump in and discover all the new things you can do in this physical activity game! More cards = more challenges like “slide under the Trick-a-ma-stick with the boat on your head” or “jump up and down with the cake between your elbows”!
Helps kids discover their own abilities, encourages self-confidence and self-esteem, promotes early-reading skills, and provides full-body active fun!
