Fun Games to play with kids inside your home is important to their development. It helps them to develop their imagination along with their physical abilities. This can also bring a new member into the family, which will make the overall experience much more fulfilling. Here are some fun and easy ways to get your kids involved in making their very own board games for the holidays.
Freeze Tag – Freezing Tag is a great way to have fun with friends inside a large group. Find a large group of people who all love to play Freeze Tag. Divide the group into two or more groups and set up cones around the playing area. Make sure you have enough rope to tie into the cones. Have the first group to stand in front of the first group and try to tag as many balloons as possible. When the person completes the challenge, they get to move to the next cone.
Two NosQQ teams must be on opposite ends of the green hexagon. The players on each team take turns rolling a disc into the center of the hexagon. The first team to earn three points wins. If there is a tie, each team gets an extra point and the winning team gets one point for having the most people.
Freeze Tag is great because it allows you to get creative while still having a simple board game. For example, you can play with two teams, each team getting two attempts to tag the balloons. However, if a player drops his or her balloon, they have to replace it with another. If one team tags the balloons, that team has to replace theirs before the next round starts. The last person to tag all the balloons wins. This is one of the easiest of all the fun games to teach kids how to share and cooperate.
In addition to Freeze Tag and Jingle Ball, I would also recommend you teach your children how to take turns in Charades. It is just like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, only you are using a game show format to come up with questions. For every correct answer, the player earns a point. There are many different version of Charades you can play, depending on the TV show you are watching or the age of the players. The objective is basically to ask questions that are right from the TV shows theme.
Bounce House Party – Bounce houses are always a big hit at birthday parties and other get togethers. They can be a simple set up, but you can add lots of fun by purchasing bounce houses that let you and your guests to jump through hoops. Purchase inflatable bounce houses that have little ladders sticking out so you can jump through the hoops. These type of bouncers usually have built in music as well, so you don’t have to spend extra money on something that doesn’t come with the inflatable.
