- Ridiculously Fun Outdoor Games for Kids!
This is a very old favourite, thought to date back to Tudor times at least! It was originally known as Blind Man's Buff. There is also a traditional Chinese version known as "Blind Man" or "Chicken". Capture The Flag has always been a huge favourite with my kids, who learned it at a school summer camp and have played on every available occasion since. It is a great game for large, mixed age groups and long summer afternoons! This traditional Chinese chase game can cause much screeching and excitement!
Play outdoors - or indoors, if you have a large room. It is also known simply as "Cat and Mouse".
This traditional Chinese game is great fun for the playground. You will need a large group of children - at least 10, but the more the merrier! The kids can be any age. This easy circle game for children needs no equipment and tires the kids out quickly! You can play it outdoors but only on a dry day and preferably on grass, to save the children's knees!
This traditional Chinese playground game develops children's ball skills and their concentration - it really keeps them on their toes! It is probably best for children aged 6 or older and can be played indoors or outdoors. This is a simple, old-fashioned game for younger children similar to "Bow Bells".
Of course you can substitute "flowers" for animals, colours or any other category for which the children will be able to think of a number of options. Play indoors or outdoors. Forcing The City Gates is a traditional Chinese game for boys - and one which requires a fair amount of energy and some outside space to play!
Give the game an exciting look by painting the pieces different colors!
