Games to play with small children

Regular readers will have gleaned that I'm very big on simple games that you can do in minutes without any equipment, but there is always a place for what are often termed "Board Games" though in many cases they don't have a board at all.  As well as being great fun, they can help children to develop and practise skills from reading and number through to memory, turn-taking, following instructions and rules and all sorts of useful things like that.  Here are some of the ones that we have so far (children aged 2 and 4).

I'm also keen to get hold of a children's Scrabble (maybe Santa will provide next Christmas).  We play one of these games probably about once a week at least, and it's a really great way to get sitting down together having fun.

What "board games" do you have, and what would you recommend?
