FAQs on Breastfeeding As our children get older, playing with them becomes much more interactive. We are able to communicate with them and teach them all sorts of fun games. This encourages our children to be active and learn how to play well with others.
There is nothing better than gathering together with your friends and their children on a great summer day and get one of the following games going!
Posham Pa: Two of the participants form a bridge with their arms and the rest of the participants go under the bridge. Everyone sings the song. At the end of the song, the last person is trapped inside the bridge.
Red Light, Green Light: Everyone stands in a straight line horizontally at the starting point. One person is chosen to be the signal. He or she says “red light” or “green light”. Green light signifies that everyone runs forward. Red light signifies for everyone to stop. If someone moves when “red light” is said, he or she must go back to the starting line! The person who reaches the signal first wins!
Red Rover, Red Rover: Two teams are formed and stand facing each other. Each team links hands. One team starts by saying “Red rover, red rover, send ____ right over”. They choose the name of a person on the other team. It is that person’s job to run through the links of the opposite team. If that person is able to break the chain, he or she can choose one person from the opposite team to take back to their team. If he or she can’t break the chain, he or she must join the opposite team. The team with the most people at the end wins!
Hide and Seek: One person is chosen as the seeker and must count to 20 with his or her eyes closed. In that time, everyone else must hide. The seeker then goes to find everyone else. The person found last becomes the new seeker!
Sardines: This game is a reversal of hide and seek. One person hides and everyone else counts to 20. Then, everyone goes to find the person who hid. When he or she is found, that seeker should hide with him or her. Eventually, all of the seekers will be hiding with the original person who hid. The last person to find the group will become the next person to hide!
Playing with our children helps our bond grow and encourages their sportsmanship, teamwork, and imaginations. Have a great time playing these games with your little ones
