Which are good 'easier' Orchard games!?

I'd like some Orchard games (as they're lovely and sturdy!) that are on a par with Shopping List and Tummy Ache, rather than any of the 'telling the time' addition or 'paying for things' games. Could anyone possibly recommend any they have or their 3-5 year olds like?

Thank you so much!

We have the cupcake one which is popular, both for playing the game and pretend picnicking!

Incy wincy spider

You might be too old for red dog blue dog.
We also have a rocket one, and spotty dogs, both of which are very similar.

Incey wincy spider, heads shoulders knees and toes and the rocket one are enjoyed by my nearly 3yo old and my 5yo doesn't mind playing them still

We have a farmyand one, very similar to shopping list that my kids 2 and 5 really enjoy playing. It's called old mcdonald lotto.

Wow-these replies are brilliant, thank you smile

The game is for two children in a YrR/Y1 class who are working at levels significantly below the rest of the class, but they absolutely love Tummy Ache and Shopping List.

If I could buy just two games, that were quite different to each other and different to the two I have, which should I buy!?

Crazy Chefs and Monster Catcher still very popular with my 5yo dd and even sometimes 7yo ds. Also Party Party Party, though might be too long for 3yo.

Looking at the website, I think I'd go for
Incy OR doodle bugs
Rockets or ladybirds or spotty dogs

My DD (3.9) loves Bus Stop which is basic counting, both adding and taking away.

Shopping Game and Tell the Time. Both very successful with my boys when they were younger.

Where's my cupcake? Good matching pairs game.

Spotty dogs hugely popular with both mine at that age. For something that takes a bit longer, but still doesn't require adding/time-telling etc, 3 Little Pigs has been another huge hit.
