Awesome Preschool Birthday Party Games (Ages 2-5)

Get ready for a really awesome list of preschool birthday party games. These short and non-competitive games are just right for your little preschooler!

Adults often don’t realize that most young children don’t cope very well with losing and being made to “sit out”.

If you’ve ever witnessed a young party guest frustrated and in tears as she struggled to compete in an activity that was meant to be fun it’s enough to break your heart.

Competitive games should be avoided until children are about seven-years-old. In the mean time, it’s best to plan some activities with no winners, and others where every kid wins a little treat.
