The article presents an approach to the creation of developing curricula for cognitive and personal development of preschool and early school age children utilizing the board games. The conditions under which these games promote development are described. The board games are described in detail, discussing the characteristics that distinguish them from other games, toys and game material. A certain sequence of work in the construction of developing curricula is developed: selection of basic skills needed to perform tasks at the preschool and early school age; construction of the logic for skills development – sequence of development of operations forming an ability; creation of game sequence, in which the operations constituting an ability will be developed.

Keywords: educational games, board games, developing curricula, metacognitive skills.
