I've got a three year boy who is dying to game with me. Problem is that I want him to play something that actually teaches him something. Any suggestions? I don't want to raise a button masher.

Indie games are really great for toddlers because alot of them are 2D, so they get the basic coordination down and they're cheap.
My son is 3 now and we've been playing Kaleidoscope for almost a year now
For very young kids (6 monthes to a year), there is an indie game called A Game For Alexander. It's 80 points and our 10 month old daughter loves it.
I couldn't find Draw a Picture with me, there is a painting party, but I haven't tried it yet. We are currently playing Toddler Tantrum which is like BabySmash if you have ever tried that on PC.
There are LOTS of games aimed at very small children on the Indie Games. It will take a while to go through them all, they have trial versions and mostly only cost 80 MS points, so worth checking out!
I found "Let's Draw A Picture Together" in the Other section, so we are trying that now.
I love the Indie game "Draw a picture with me" tons of fun. The new Sesame Street Kinect game could be right up his alley. Looks fun.
ooo have to check out draw a picture with me, that sounds cool. Thanks for the tip!
If you have Kinect, Once Upon a Monster.
I'll add that in games we play that aren't identified as 'learning' games, my boy, and I suspect other children pick up on things out of enthusiasm of learning the game, such as counting items, trying to read, colors, shapes
lol dont knock us button mashers!!! Actually im facing the same problem with a 3 yr old in my life
I don't think my little girl is quite ready for gaming yet... She struggles to hold the controller in her little hands. I might have to get her a little mini pad... Are those available?
We haven't tried gaming together again, apart from the fantastic pets demo, which I prefer to kinectimals.
Overall tho, I think 2 might be too young. :(
