If you need easy party games for kids (boys or girls, aged 3-5), then Boardgame Beast can help!

Here's our top recommendations, depending on your party, in no particular order. A party game suitable for Halloween may be just as good as another game that's really perfect for a girl's tea party, for example, so ranking them would not make sense.
What is special about Twister is its surprising appeal to all age groups. Even adults can play it, though the appeal for young kids is very different, being about taking part, not being competitive with one another. A good investment, as you can bring this out year after year. A great physical challenge that promotes flexibility and courage. There are many different Twister games with different themes, plus more portable editions, outdoor giant Twister games, and more.
There's not much to say about Candyland: it's super-colorful, requires no reading or math skills, and is perfect for the 3-5yrs age group. Up to four can play, so for smaller parties it can be a good distraction. There are some fun gift items which use the famous game's theme, so if you're planning a candy-themed Halloween or birthday party, this is great.
While there are plenty of Cranium board games for teen to adult players, not many are designed for this age group. Thankfully, Hullabaloo is the exception. It's a terrific game, loaded with action and activity, noise and funky fun!
LPS is a very popular theme, and even if you're "only" having a dog- or cat-themed party, the Littlest Pet Shop game will be a great fit. The cute characters and simple game play make it a good choice of board game for preschool kids.
