I arranged to do a school gaming day for the children and their parents, most children will be between the ages of 5-10 years old.

I would be interested to hear people's thoughts, if you feel a game in your experience didn't work well with children or something that really should go on the list.

Now I built this list obviously with games I happen to own and I am sure there are many missing that I could have

My 5 year old picked that from our LFGS. I was surprised how good it actually is. Everyone plays a gardner and you lay garden tiles in turn with different number of flower patches on them. By covering up yours and other players patches you get those type of flowers, which you can sell. The more divers your bouquets are the more money you get. you also use your Gardner, pets and ornaments to protect your patches

Defend the caste from an onslaught of trolls and goblins etc. by playing cards. It's s cooperative game. I will probably not use the wizard tower for the kids as to make things easier.

This game has you pick from a hand of gorgeous looking cards one in secret and describe in in anyway you like (story, sentence, sound), then everyone chooses a card from there hand that could fit the description, all of those are then mixed together and people vote which one your spoke about. Points are awarded to everyone that gets a vote, the most points go the the story teller if some people find his card BUT some won't...that makes it interesting but also not for the young once as this is a hard concept to grasp, in my view.

A dungeon crawler with a twist. the monsters you encounter are fought with dice (of course) but instead of rolling them you BOUNCE them on the table to hit a target disc to do damage. You can get bonus but that has you throwing dice over your shoulder or with your eyes closed or jumping up etc. Also different rooms and monsters might have you throw the dice in different ways...very funny.

Simple card game, well simple with a twist. It's a coop card game where everyone can see what the others have in their hand but nobody knows his own cards...you have to give each other tips to play the right cards, how many tips you give are limited and if you play the wrong cards, well that game won't last long that way

Probably doesn't need much introduction. It got penguins, kids love it. It's a simple game where you move your penguins around tiles and try to end up on the tiles with the most fish, every time you move away from such a tile you keep it. As the game progresses more tiles are missing, increasing the chance to get trapped somewhere. The game ends when all penguins are trapped, then everyone counts up the fish on the tiles he got, got the most? you win.

Silly fun with shapes and colors, play one on your turn at random from your deck in front of you, if you got a matching one with at least one other player a duel starts where both players try to grab the rubber totem that is standing in the middle of the table. However gets that first can pass on his played cards to the loser. Get rid of all your cards to win.

try to get your adventures as far along the various paths as you can to score points. You play cards to move them and if you don't get the right cards or other people play them first than you might not get far enough on some of the paths and get points deducted

Simple tile game, with a timer. Hurry to get the best tiles and build your continent. However has the best combination of animals and avoiding minus points for things like Volcano wins a round.

Like Galaxy Trucker light for kids.

Story telling game where everyone has a secret ending to a story and a handful of cards that you have to get rid of to win by mentioning them in your story or using them to interrupt/take over the story while someone else is telling it.

pick a race and place them on the map to score points, eventually you switch to a new race preferably before you loose too much ground to someone else's race. Most races will still provide you with some ability once you switched.
