Rock-paper-scissors is an easy, fast game that everyone probably already knows. But I like to be comprehensive, so here are some rock-paper-scissors instructions, including a video and a link to some interesting tips at how to win.
An imagining game where players talk out loud, describing a dream cabin or house. It’s best for a small group of players and is ideal for playing on long car rides.
Monkey in the middle is a throwing and catching game for a small group. Players try to keep the ball away from one player, the “monkey.”
This is a game, or really more of an activity, to play around the house. It’s ideal for one to two players, really entertaining for little children, a new favorite of my four-year-old, and the reason my handheld mirror is broken.
This is a Christmas gift exchange activity, using the poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” and the words “right” and “left” to instruct children to pass their gifts to the right or the left. It’s kind of like a white elephant gift exchange, but for younger kids because it’s easier and faster and, because there’s no actual choosing involved, will probably lead to less gift-picker remorse.
This is the classic children’s game every child thinks he or she invented. Basically, THE FLOOR IS LAVA! Don’t touch it! Can be played indoors or at a park. 🙂
A perfect, easy little kid game that’s popular with the little ones…but that doesn’t mean it’s not enjoyed by bigger “kids” too. 🙂
