Charades is a great game to play. Think up a bunch of ideas cards such as objects, actions, movies, animals, etc. Write then on seperate bits of paper for the players to act out.
All you need is paper, a pen, and a hat or container for the paper slips to be put in.
Lots of laughs to be had!
Doing a puzzle as a family is lots of fun!
There are lots of board games you can play as a family - haven't got any - make one using cardboard or paper.
Musical Chairs is fun and super easy to play - can be played indoors or outdoors.
Set up an obstacle course indoors or outdoors. You can use whatever you like.
It can help teach words like over, under, through, around, and many more!
Also its lots of fun!
Outside you could include the hose or the garden sprinkler.
The setup of this game can actually be as fun as playing it. Divide into two teams, create some sock balls from pairs of socks, and then each team creates its fort! Blankets, pillows, chairs, and couches are all fair game. Once you have built your elaborate fort, make sure all breakables are cleared away and start throwing! If a kid is hit then they are out for the remainder of the game. The last team standing wins. If you don’t mind your kids activity games to get crazy, this is the indoor game for you. It also translates well to an outdoor game – just make sure you bring in all the socks when you are done.
