What a perfect opportunity for d and their kids to get outside and enjoy playing some fun games together. And most require nothing more than some simple household items … and a little imagination. With water limbo, all you need is a hose, and a nozzle that provides a steady, straight stream of water. Use the stream of water as a limbo stick. With their knees bent and their backs arched, have your kids attempt to maneuver their bodies under the stream of water without getting wet. Take turns, and continue lowering the water stream until you reach a point where the kids can no longer get underneath without getting soaked.
Placing rubber matting on the ground beneath the stream can help with this. If you have a kiddie pool, Freeze-Up is a fun activity that can help to develop foot coordination, and cool everyone off at the same time. Fill the pool with water and add ice cubes, and then have each person try to remove the ice cubes with their feet. Try to toss and catch a lightweight ball from towel to towel. This is a fun game for two players.
It helps develop motor and spacial coordination, along with concentration. And all you need is a tennis ball and a wall with a relatively flat, even surface. The idea is to throw the ball at the wall, then before it bounces back to you, quickly perform certain actions before catching it. You can work your way through each action one time, and then proceed to the next, or adjust the game so that each player must perform each action several times in repetition before moving on to the next action.
If all this is too easy, change hands and try repeating the same actions with your non-dominant arm. Start by cutting a half dozen holes of different shapes and sizes into the long side of the shoebox. Circles, rectangles and triangles are a good starting point. Each one should be big enough for a marble to pass through. Above each hole write a between one and six. Smaller holes that are more difficult to hit should get higher s greater score value and bigger holes that are easier to hit should get smaller s lower score value. From a deated spot, have the players take turns trying to shoot their marbles through the holes.
If a marble goes through a hole, its owner retrieves it and collects the deated of marbles as indicated by the above the hole, e. The Egg-and-spoon race dates back to the 19th century, but remains just as fun and challenging today. All you need is enough spoons and eggs for each participant. Use hard boiled eggs for tiny tots and raw eggs for older children. Another variation of this game is to use a potato instead of an egg. Less mess, but also less stress. Have your competitors line up next to each other, each one holding a spoon in one hand with an egg on it.
With one hand behind their back, have your kids race to a pre-set finish line, trying not to drop their eggs. If your younger kids drop the hard boiled eggs the first two or three times they attempt a race, allow them to pick it up and go back to the start line to begin again while the rest of the race is going on.
Just be certain they remove their hand from the egg and place it behind their back before again attempting to cross the finish line. A cookie is affixed to a thread and suspended from a tree branch or artificial structure of some sort. Each player takes their turn trying to eat the food item from the thread while keeping their hands clasped behind their backs. One can substitute healthier snacks for this game, too. Try cutting an apple into segments, drilling a hole in each segment, and then running the string through that hole to suspend the fruit.
Play the game the same way you would play regular Tag. The person with the red glow stick must tag another player. But using a potato is something I have to try! Hi Jessica, I completely agree! I hate the mess the food makes. Where did you happen to buy the Egg and Spoon race kit? I agree! I babysit my cousins and I find we have to do a lot of stuff indoors so if you guys have any games for indoors that would be great!
