Treasure Hunt

This is my favorite game of all time but making this game is really tough but exciting.

Tell the children about the rules of the game and divide them into teams.

Then send teams of guests on the hunt. You can also create a treasure map to make it more exciting.

Write clues on paper and hide it  anywhere in your house(play area).Each clues contains the hint where to find next clue.

Dumb Charades

The best thing about this game is its suitable for all ages and you can never get bored of it.

Dumb Charades is a game suitable for all ages. It involves acting out words told(whispered) by opponent team.

The object is to get your team to guess the answer using gestures alone.

The player acting isn’t allowed to speak. For example if the said movie is in english he’ll just tell his team by giving thumbs up.

Fill a tray with familiar objects.

Have the kids study it for one minute.

Passing the Parcel Game

Again old game but interesting and involves all kids together.

Make the chits of different funny tasks and keep it in a bowl.

Take a cushion, play some music and ask kids to pass the cushion one by one.

As the music stops, the kid with the cushion has to pick a chit from the bowl and complete the task.

musical chair 

Musical chair

Again my favourite game. We all pay it  and divide the team according to age groups.

Set some(one less than total no of kids)  chairs in two rows back to back or in a circle facing outwards.

Turn on the music, and the kids walk around the chairs without touching them.
When the music stops the players race to sit in the available chairs.

The player left standing is taken out of the game. Remember no one is allowed to take a step back while claiming their chair.

Do the Opposite

Instruct kids to do the opposite as instructed. It would be better if you make some flash cards to avoid shouting as kids party is always loud.

For example, if you ask them to lift left hand they have to lift right one or ask them to jump forward, they have to jump backwards. Those who doesn’t follow rules are out. Keep on playing until you find your winner.

It’s funny and good for hyperactive ones.
