Calm games for children 5-6 years old
You can use all already listed calm games for children for older children as well. However, there are two more wonderful games that are suitable for older preschoolers.
1. Forest wall newspaper.
This is a real long-running project that can take your child a few days. Such a game not only develops reading and writing skills (if any already exist), but also arouses imagination, the ability to distribute and structure information, as well as the ability to set goals and achieve them.
Prepare a piece of paper, pencils, felt-tip pens, glue, unnecessary magazines and scissors. Tell your child the terms of the game. You can come up with a fairy tale that the animals in the forest decided to publish their newspaper, but they can’t cope and therefore ask for help. Or, on the contrary, you can give a serious business task. The eyeliner for the game depends on the inclinations of the child himself.

For wall newspapers, you can use collages, cut-out pictures or single letters, drawings, short texts or words. If you yourself are interested in such a lesson, you can tell a little about publishing and try to make the newspaper “for real.”
2. Cote Bayun
This game is suitable for a weekday evening, just before the evening ritual. She tunes in a calm manner, contributes to the development of musical ear, sense of rhythm, fantasy.
Arrange the competition for knowing more calm songs and lullabies. Everyone should sing one after another and the one who will sing last will be considered the winner. Songs can be author or folk, invented or long existing, you can even sing something in a fictional language. The main criterion of the song is the melody – lyrical and soothing.
