Six-year-olds are usually active and have slightly longer attention spans than 4- or 5-year-olds. They can understand simple rules and follow directions, as well as enjoy friendly competition, because 6-year-olds typically understand winning and losing. Try to include games that allow for a winner and that can be played multiple times to get different kids to win. You could also plan games that allow everyone to win in one way or another.
