If you're at all handy, you can create amazing cardboard sculpture with Mr. McGroovy's Box Rivets. My husband made this pair of robots for Ronan's birthday party. We then let the kids go to town with washable paint and brushes.

If you want to see something truly amazing, check out the castles. Maybe for Bea's third birthday?? He also has advice about where to get boxes for free

Moving on from Go Fish

I bought my son the Rat-a-Tat-Cat card game based on some recommendations from the mommas over at Mothering. And we love it! Can't get enough of it. You have four cards, and the object is to have the lowest score.

It says six and up, but we play the modified version for younger kids and Ronan does great with it. This may become my new go-to gift for five-year-olds. My mom and husband and I even played it after the kiddos were in bed. It plays fast and has both chance and skill involved in satisfying measures. 

Available on Amazon.
