As I already wrote, my daughter has many friends. Many, respectively, and birthdays, which we attend. Usually celebrations take place in entertainment centers, where animators are engaged with children, but the ideas of games can be used at home, on a visit, on the street.
Required props – 2 types of tools, for example, pipes and tambourines. Children explain the rules – when they hear the word number 1, you need to blow into the tune; Participants with tambourines beat them when they pronounce the word No. 2. Further we include a song in which some words often repeat. For example, Antoshka – the words tili-tili and Antoshka.
You need a lot of small balls of several colors, a bucket or basket. Children are divided into teams – two or three, depending on the number. We give each team a task – to collect balls of a certain color into the basket. Wins the team that will cope first.
In winter, you can collect snowballs – colorful cotton balls or clumps of colored paper. Also fit small balloons.
Again divide the participants into two teams. To make it even more interesting, we come up with a name for the teams with the children. Tasks can come up with a lot. For example, move the apples from the heap, which is located near the team, into the bucket, which is located at some distance. The children take turns taking an apple, running to the bucket, putting the fruit in it, returning, passing the baton to the next participant (i.e., they just clap, for example, on the shoulder). The first team to win is the winner.
You can also put 2 chairs at some distance from the teams and the participants take turns to get to the chair and back in a certain way – on a typewriter, on one leg, in a bag, on a toy horse, etc.
As a holiday, you can invite children to do something with their own hands. Many ideas – applications, modeling, crafts from scrap materials (paralonovye sponges, napkins, colored paper, disposable tableware).
Invite the children to learn the dance. Which depends on your imagination. Macarena is the most popular in our company, the dance of little ducklings, and giraffe spots. If you have a machine with soap bubbles, light effects, be sure to use them.
Prepare in advance disposable glasses, better multicolored. Of these, together, you can build an excellent tower, wall or castle. And after no less fun together destroy the building.
Participants stand in a circle, and an adult asks them a question: the neighbor has good ones. and further calls one of the parts of the body, for example the elbows. In response, the children say: Yes!, Take each other by the elbows and lead a round dance. In the next question, another part of the body is called (nozzles, knees, tummies, etc.), having taken it, the kids should make a circle of round dance.
Children will accept popular adult dance with joy! Let me remind the rules: two adults hold a rope (rope, tape) at the height of the participants, and over time they lower it lower and lower. Children must pass under the rope without touching it; whoever does this is dropped out of the game. The winner is the one who will last the longest.
Have time to return to the place
I remember this game since my childhood, I am sure that you, too. Chairs are placed back to each other, their number is one less than the number of participants. We include cheerful music, as soon as it suddenly stops, children sit down on the chairs. Who did not have time to sit down, is eliminated from the game. The winner is the last one to sit down. Hoops can be used instead of chairs.
And what children’s games do you know?
