What board games or other are you playing with your kids. At the moment my 4 year old daughter can play Trouble if we don't enforce the 6 to start rule.

try some of the Gamewright card games (Amazon)... we have Rat-A-Tat cat, Zues on the Loose, and Loot and we like them... they have games for younger kids too... the thing I like are that they are easy to play and go really quick so you can play if you have 10-15 minutes here and there... our other card game is UNO, but it is a little longer and more involved

Zingo has been popular at our house for a few years although its not really turn taking. Its like bingo but with cards that have pictures on them likes houses and shoes and dogs and stuff instead of having to figure out which square is B9, etc. Candyland was also a good one. She might be ready for Go Fish?
