  • My 5yr. old really likes to play games on the computer, usually on pbskids.org or starfall.com. He also likes to ride his bike and play outside, especially in the sandbox or if he can use water. He also likes to color, play in his bean box, or play playstation.

  • My ss plays with Transformers, he LOVES to paint so throw some play clothes on your son, get some finger paints and big paper and let him go to town outside while you just sit back and relax! My ss is also really into cars and trucks, planes, etc....playing computer games on pbskids.org or noggin.com is also a favorite of his. Riding his bike or scooter and going for walks. Catching any kind of bugs, worms, frogs, fish is cool to him. We walk in th river by our house and look for craw fish and worms. He's a boy, do dirty, gross things and he'll LOVE IT! lol

  • Legos. My son is almost 9 now. That boy is hooked on Legos & will spend hours & hours, so quietly. It's wonderful. Try them.

  • I should mention the wonderful thing about Legos is that your child will not outgrow them. Now that your son is 5, he can use the normal size Legos. They will take him through the end of him playing with toys, not just a year or so.
