What games does your four or five year old understand?

I'd like to look into a game that Hunter can play with us. He's five and a half years old, but doesn't understand as much or have much patience to sit down for something uninteresting to him.

I have Hi Ho Cherry-Oh in storage that I am going to find and bring out, so we can play that with him. I looked at the back of an Apple to Apples game at WalMart and I don't think he'll get it. It was a Disney edition.

What other young games are there?

Memory is out. He doesn't have the patience for it, and isn't able to remember where something is/was. Maybe in a few years.

Hullabalo has mats that you put around the room and a talking thing shaped like a circle that tells you what to do in the game. she says things like "get on a circle" or "get on an instrument" or "get on an animal" at the end the talking thing says "if you are on the blank you are a winner" then she says "take a bow" or "do a funky dance" to the winner
