Games for Kids

Wrapped Packages

Take a small gift ( book, puzzle, paint set, model) that is age appropriate for the group.  Wrap the gift in several layers of paper (about 7 layers). 

Have the children sit in a circle and the adult will play music and when it stops, whoever is holding the package gets to unwrap a layer of paper.  The person unwrapping the last layer gets to keep that gift.  ypu might want small gifts to give to the others, depending on the age of the children. 

Clothespin Toss

This is a good Game for Smaller Groups and for children over 7 yrs. of age.

You will need a hand held mirror, ten clothpins and a large bowl.

Have each child sit on a chair with his/her back to the bowl. Have them bring the bowl into focus with the morror and then hand them clothespins, one at a time.  They are to toss the clothespins over their shoulder and try to get the clothespin to land in the bowl.  the child with the most clothspins wins the game. ( 2-3 practice shots is helpful for each child)
