Social life has symbols and symbols. Without the recognition of social symbols, one cannot live in society. The premise of social life is "socialization"; and education scientists are trying to use the tools necessary to optimize the appropriate context for enhancing and promoting the social development of children during development. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of educational games on the social development of preschool children. The study was experimental with pre-test and post-test with the control group. For this purpose, 60 boys and girls from preschool education in the sixth district of Kabul city in 2019 were selected by multistage cluster sampling method and randomly divided into experimental and control groups. The witnesses were divided; then the Weinland Social Growth Test was used as a pre-test for both groups. The experimental group was then given educational games for 8 weeks (two sessions of 45- 30 minutes per week). At the end of the re-test, Weinland's social growth test was administered to both groups as post-test. Then the data from pre-test and post-test were analyzed using the t-test. The results showed that there was a significant difference between the mean social growth of students who did educational games and those who did not. According to the findings of this study, it can be said that educational games increase social development of preschool children.
