In the new entertainment age, where television, computers and internet are the latest mediums of entertainment, the fun and joy of outdoor games seems to be disappeared. These days’ children tend to glue in front of the television sets or computers. Outdoor games play an imperative role in making children and adults physically and mentally active. Some fresh air is required to keep the mind and body dynamic.
You may not remember the outdoor games you used to play when you were a kid. But the fact is kids of present times may also not remember as the too busy to play computer games. In order to make your kid go out of the computer world for sometime think and plan of some sort of outing such as a party, a camping trip, or a visit to some local park. Kids Outdoor Games are also a good idea to keep up to the physical activities required for the perfect growth of the kids.
Plenty of outdoor games are there, however, outdoor games are usually chosen depending on the age group of the children. It could be also be dependent on the competitiveness of the game and the number of players that would be needed. If you wish to keep things at peace, games that are not competitive will be of good choice.
Few of the Kids Outdoor Games that the children will keep busy while enjoying the game are as follows:
* Been bag toss is a good game but is competitive, so it requires an elder to be always present so as to avoid unnecessary argument or else the situation will heat up and the play ground may become battle ground for the kids.
* For a summer evening, bug or insect hunt game is decent. It can be played while you are on a walk. To begin with start with simpler and easy things such as who can reach the tree first. These games are quite effective for small kids are about to go to school.
* While touring or camping making a map can be exciting and will be mind boggling for the little preschooler. Allow the kid to draw his mind, give him a set crayons and paper. Ask them to draw a map of the area from where you have walked or pictures of anything that you both may have noticed on the way. You will certainly be surprised to see how creative there mind is and all the things they talk about. This activity can be tried anywhere such as for on the way back to home from school or from the market etc. It would still be enjoyable for both the parents and kids.
* The Duck Duck Goose is also a good game to entertain all the audiences present in a fine summer afternoon. This game required to involve a number of kids, as the kids are made to sit inwards to form a circle. A kid is made to walk around the circle; he is also supposed to tap each kids head saying either ‘duck’ or ‘goose’. The ‘duck’ kids are supposed to sit while the kid called ‘goose’ needs to stand up and chase the kid who called him goose. Once after chasing, the chased kid sits at the empty space in the circle and the goose one now starts walking around the circle calling out ‘duck’ or ‘goose’.
