To play, you place tiles to build streets in the city of Carcassonne, so the road-building aspect is fantastic for growing spatial intelligence.
If this is your first introduction to the world of Carcassonne, be sure to check out the main version of Carcassonne for ages 7 and up when your family is ready to graduate.
From the Manufacturer
The city of Carcassonne is celebrating its national holiday. As is the tradition, people mark the occasion by setting the city’s sheep, hens, and cows loose in the streets. From dawn till dusk, the children of Carcassonne have the time of their lives trying to bring these animals back home. With My First Carcassonne, players of all ages can experience a new version of the modern classic. Each turn, you place a tile to build the Medieval city of Carcassonne. As the game progresses, the children of Carcassonne—illustrated on the cards—fill the streets trying to catch animals. Whenever you close a street with one or more children marked with your chosen color, you get to put pawns on the board. The first player to place all their pawns wins the game!

Lots of fun and strategy combined in this game. By arranging your path tiles, you can play to help others or only yourself. This would make for a good cooperative game for kids who like everyone to win.
My husband and I played this by ourselves on a demo night at a game store and had a blast. I think it would be fun for kids who like mazes to just arrange the tiles as a solo play.
My First Carcassonne is a fabulous game for the young kids in your household. It can be played as simply putting cards together to match your color, to understand spatial awareness and later to teach strategy. I have been playing with my 9 year old for 4 years and she still LOVES it. And I still enjoy playing it too!
I play games with my 6-year-old, and Carcassonne and Forbidden Island are GREAT games!
