We are refreshing our game library in anticipation of April showers. Candyland, Chutes and Ladders and Memory are all early childhood classics, but it doesn't take long to reach platinum status with endless trips to Candy Castle. Beyond colors, numbers, shapes, letters and following directions, games give young players a chance to work on soft skills like turn taking and good sportsmanship. Here are a few well suited for the preschool set.

1. Children's Card Games (Old Maid, Rummy, Hearts, Crazy Eights) $10.01
2. The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game $15.23
3. Pop-Up Pirate $28.99
4. Honey Bee Tree $16.44
5. Don't Break The Ice $11.30
