While games for girls can certainly be fun for the entire family, most are designed with girls' interests in mind. Sure, plenty of little girls like playing outside and getting dirty, but many will enjoy games that feature girly things like princesses, tea parties, and fashion. Games for girls also provide fun bonding entertainment for events like birthday parties and sleepovers.
The best games will combine fun, girly themes, with benefits that are present in popular mainstream, family, or educational games. Games that encourage things like counting, strategy, spelling, creativity, and more are all the more engaging to girls when they include characters and subjects that interest them.
One of Peaceable Kingdom's Award winning games for girls, Mermaid Island takes players on a magical mermaid adventure. Different than competitive games, cooperative games like Mermaid Island encourage girls to work as a team to solve a problem. Together, players spin, move, and hopefully defeat the Sea Witch. If they succeed, then everyone wins!

Silly Street the Game is an excellent game for groups of girls to play together at birthday parties or sleepovers. It encourages positive interactions as well as teamwork and adaptability. First, players draw a card from the deck. Then, the player must perform the activity on the card. That's where the fun begins! Card activities include inventing stories about little characters in silly situations, finding and interpreting things on the board, contests between players, and silly animal reenactments.

A list of games for girls would be incomplete without Princess-Opoly. Princess-Opoly is similar to other Junior Monopoly games, with a fun princess theme. Junior Monopoly games are designed with many of the same concepts of other Opoly games, but because of simplified gameplay, they are easier for younger children to grasp. In addition, Princess-Opoly incorporates shorter gameplay. Players work their way around the board and collect “princess friends”. When another player lands on their space, the space owner collects an allowance.
