What’s better than a game like a treasure hunt to involve students in an activity through which they can learn things such as how to navigate a map to find something? Create some clues and place some small gifts for students and children to search, so that when they find the hidden item they get a surprise for the Children’s Day.
It is a group activity that can be played inside or outside. One kid will give the den while the others will hide, and then the person who was giving the den will seek other children.
This game is the best way to teach kids about teamwork. It keeps them running and moving which is a great physical activity.
Lemon Spoon Race
This race is the most fun game. In this game, children have to put the spoon holding a lemon in their mouth and then run. The lemon is not supposed to fall till the race finishes. It is a game of balancing while racing.
This classic game is one of the favourite games for kids. Place a circle of chairs, one less than the number of players. Play the music and make the kids walk around the chairs while the music plays. As soon as stops, the kids need to find a chair and sit in instantly. The player who is left without a chair is out. Remove one chair and continue playing until there is only one player left standing.
