15 Learning Games for Preschoolers

Games for preschoolers provide so many learning opportunities. We make sure to play these types of games in our classroom regularly. Sometimes we will play them as a large group at circle time, sometimes in groups of 4 during small groups, and they are also used as an activity during centers time. I am always looking for more ideas, so recently I got out my planner, opened up Pinterest, and went hunting for learning games. There were many available, but these are 15 that I loved the most. Oh, and a couple are my own, just because I love to share my ideas, too!
