Kick the Can (Our Version)
I remember playing this while camping with my family as a child. So much fun and the only equipment needed is a can of some sort! It is a combination of hide and seek and tag! There are several variations that include kids going to jail, calling out the name of kids as they find them, etc. Here is our version:
I hadn’t heard of this game until the kids taught us how to play it after playing it at their friend’s house. It’s fun and easy to learn!
Another fun game from my childhood! We recently played this with our church youth group and it was hilarious! It’s a reverse hide and go seek game. Instead of everyone hiding and one person looking for them, only one person hides and the group looks for them! You can see how playing this with 25-30 kids could have made that interesting. Especially when one of the kids decided to hide behind the curtains in one of the room. By the end there were over 20 kids hiding behind the curtains!
What games do you remember playing with your friends as a child?
Whatever happened to play? When our parents sent us outside to play until the streetlights come on? To use our imaginations, get dirty, and explore the neighborhood with friends? Cliff Kid aims to bring playtime back. Watch this video and you’ll see what they are talking about! The next time the kids are bored, have them invite their friends to “come out and play!”
