Nurture Child-Like Imagination in 3-6 Year-Olds on PlayStation 5

These games are for children under seven years old, who will, with some help, discover activities they want to try that will expand their imaginations while establishing the role of your guidance and engagement as part of the gaming world as they grow up. The more open imagination of young children lends itself to games that offer an open world. Rather than forcing the player in a particular direction open world games let players explore wherever they want. The games here offer unusual and age-appropriate experiences that are often educational but keep the emphasis on the sheer joy of interactive play rather than hard learning.

This list includes 4 games from the last 2 years, with 395 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to nurture imagination in primary school children.
