Chutes and Ladder, tic-tac-toe, play house (pretending stuff), take them to the park and do mini exercises with them, little scavenger hunt, and then reward them later on like a piece of candy.
idk! look on the front of the game book and it has ages on there.
little scavenger hunts, are really good, or tell them one of thier favorite characters (ex. elmo) left them a message to find something and then send them on a scavenger hunt,

I spy for preschool

At five years old kids can make a game out of alot of things around the house if they have a good imagination. Turn over a bunch of pots and pans, give them some wooden sticks and they will have a ball too.

Good luck
