PRESCHOOL GAME TIME
Whether at a party or a play date, preschoolers love games. No longer toddlers, they have a growing interest in playing with other kids. Physically, they’re now steady on their feet and learning to hop, skip, jump, and even somersault. Preschoolers are ready for games with simple rules. Classic preschool games are much more than just fun for children. They’re actually an essential part of the learning process, helping kids bond with their friends, burn off excess energy, and teaching skills that will help them later in life. Join us for 45 minutes of games such as Head & Shoulders, Simon Says, What Time Is It Mr. Fox, and many others.
