  • uh oh cherrio! the board game with the cherry trees... I believe its for teaching counting. and now they have a new one that has different colors. I loved that game when I was younger.
    and pay day but thats money so I guess it depends on where your son is academically.

  • Memory, Hi Ho Cheerio, Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land...all of them are great for his age. I loved playing 'em all when I was that age (except Candy Land, because I didn't know about it till I was already a teen!). I believe they say "5 and up", but really, if you think your son could do it, I'm sure he can!

  • My Son has the Melissa & Doug USA talking map puzzle & he plays with it every day. He knows all the states, the capitals & where they are on the map. He identifies each state with the name on each puzzle piece, he's 4 and it's amazing!
