A game that all my kids really enjoyed when they were younger. And a game where you can just sit still and watch them running around! It can be a race or just for fun.
Simply say, ‘Bring me something blue!’ Your kids all run off and each find something blue to bring you. When everyone has brought you an item, ask them to bring you something else!
Some ideas…’Bring me something….big, tiny, smelly, red, made of paper/plastic/wood, round, square, old, new, dead, alive, soft…’
Or, ‘Bring me a….brown leaf, yellow flower, a black sock, an insect…,’ depending of course if you’re inside or outside.
My kids love playing this at the park. For me, it’s a great game when I’m tired and my kids want me to do something with them!
You will of course end up with a huge pile of items around you! To get rid of the pile, you can reverse the game half way through and say, ‘Put back something that is blue, old, square…!’
Do you have any ideas for games that get your kids active, while you sit back and enjoy?
