Three Fun Games For Kids

If you are a parent you know that keeping children with a lot of energy entertained can sometimes be a real challenge. And finding a happy medium between indoor and outdoor activities is an even bigger challenge.

If you are a kid reading this then you too are probably looking for some fun new games to play.

So let's cover some games that might be new to you and that you might want to try.

FlingSock

There are a number of games that can be played with a FlingSock. Just what is a FlingSock? It is a Fun Gripper Bean Bag which is attached to a long tie dye nylon fabric tail which has a handle. There is also a smaller version called a Mini-FlingSock.

FlingSocks are easy to throw and easy to catch.

One game that can be played with the FlingSock is called "Drop The FlingSock". In this game everyone gathers into a large circle and someone from the group is chosen as "it". This person goes around the outside of the circle and tries to drop the FlingSock behind someone in the circle without being tagged. Once dropped he or she walks fast or races around the circle into that person's position without being tagged. If not tagged then the other person becomes "it" and the game continues.

Other games that can be played with FlingSocks are: Fling-et, FlingSock or Beanbag Baseball, FlingSock or Beanbag Tag, Pass The FlingSock, Where's The FlingSock, Jump The FlingStock and FlingSock and Beanbag Toss.

Bean Plates

This is an inexpensive game that is good to help your child learn multiplication. Simply get some small paper plates and some dried beans; pinto beans work well. For example use 3 paper plates and place 2 beans in one plate and 5 beans in the second plate. Then ask the child to place the number of beans that is 2 x 5 in the 3rd plate. This is a fun and visual way for a child to learn multiplication.

Whipped Cream Writing

This game is great for helping your child learn to write. Place a piece of wax paper on a play table and then spread whipped cream on the wax paper. Then let your children write their name, numbers or other words in the whipped cream. And with this game you don't have to worry about them licking their fingers.

These are just three fun games that will not only entertain your children they will help them learn to interact and play with others plus have some good educational pluses as well. We'll cover some more games in another article; so stay tuned.
