Outdoor games for children and teenagers
The benefits of fresh air to a growing body can not be said. However, today you can often see a situation where children prefer to walk on the street sitting at home at the computer or in front of the TV screen. This happens for the reason that parents can not provide their child with leisure. To distract the children from the computer, offer them interesting games on the street.
Outdoor games for young children
Entertaining a child during a walk is necessary, starting almost from birth. With a small crumb, you can view the surrounding objects. Call everything that you see with the child: a tree, a leaf, grass. Such games on the street have a positive effect on the child's speech skills. Pay special attention to animals, tell the child what sounds each of them utters.
For children who are confidently walking, it is better to come up with moving games. The guys especially like ball games. You can throw a ball to each other or collect a company of kids for this entertainment. Complicate gradually the task. Let the children stand in a circle and throw the ball. Everyone who does not catch it, is out of the game. The fewer participants, the more difficult it is to catch the ball.
If there are a lot of children on the site, we advise you to arrange a relay race. You can send a stick or other items. Any maze or horizontal bar will help create an obstacle course.
Children's outdoor games should be aimed at developing motor skills, agility, savvy and logical thinking.
An excellent exercise for dexterity and at the same time an exciting game will be throwing pebbles or small balls into buckets for the sandbox. Complicate gradually the game, increasing the distance between the player and the target.
Winter games on the street will help diversify the leisure of crumbs in the cold season. All mobile entertainment will have to be left until the warm days, as winter clothing fetters the movements of the kids. In snowy weather, you can sculpt snowmen or other figures from snow.
With small children it is easy to play in real detectives. Try to understand in the footsteps in the snow who went. So the child can be taught to distinguish the footprints of the cat's legs from the tracks of the pigeon. Let the little one explore his own tracks.
Outdoor games for teens
Entertainment for older children can be more difficult. Do not forget about any sports games on the street: football, volleyball, table tennis, basketball. For all these entertainments you need areas with special equipment. If those are not nearby, then you can play in a different way.
The usual throwing to each other of the ball can be combined with the game in the association. Throwing the ball in a circle, each player calls the association on the word of the previous participant.
For the next game you will need chalk and free space on the asphalt. Players split in pairs. One participant is blindfolded, and he blindly draws a picture that the other pair of participants are guessing. It must be done with the help of partner's verbal prompts.
It is possible to arrange for the children a real hunt. One participant on the back or slightly below the target, made of a regular sheet of paper. Other players must "shoot" at the target with the help of stickers. The player - the victim runs away to escape from the hunters.
And, finally, another fun entertainment helps to rally the guys, teach them to work in pairs. Players split in pairs. Participants are bound by one leg (the left foot of one with the right foot of the other). On three legs, the guys have to run to the finish.
