1. Be a backyard hero with ‘40/40 save all’

Using a tree as the home-base, one child is ‘in’ and counts to 40 while the other kids run and hide. As soon as the person who is ‘in’ spots someone in their hiding place, he runs back to the tree, shouts out the name of the hider and where they are hiding, and that person is now ‘out’. The only way the hider can save herself is if she gets to the tree first and shouts out ’40-40 save all’ - then everyone is safe and the original person remains ‘in’. If all the hiders are found then the first person who was ‘out’ is the next person to be ‘in’ and stand guard at the tree.

2.Get back to a nature and ‘hug-a-tree’

This game should be played in an area where there are plenty of trees – during a family bushwalk ornature walk would be perfect. Players get into pairs and one person is blind-folded. They are then led to a specific tree by their partner. Here, the blindfolded ‘tree-hugger’ feels the tree and has to remember, the shape, texture and smell of the tree. Then they are taken back to the starting point, their blindfold is removed and they have to try and identify their tree.

3.Animal Farm Game:

Choose one person to be the farmer.

The farmer's job is to assign two players for each animal on the list.
The farmer then whispers to each player what their animal's identity is. Each player must not reveal what their animal is.
When the farmer starts the game, the players must call out for their "mate" by making the sound of their animal: for example, a cow will moo, a dog will bark.
Once a player hears their "mate", they must join together and sit down.
The first animal mates to find each other and sit are the winners.

4. Clapping Game:

Players sit in a circle cross-legged and take a number each, starting with number one.

They start singing the following song by slapping their thighs twice then clapping their hands twice:

Concentration (slap slap clap clap)

Are you ready? (slap slap clap clap)

If - so - (slap slap clap clap)

Let’s - go! (slap slap clap clap)

Then player one, continuing the rhythm, says her own number twice followed by another number in the circle.

For example: 1, 1, 4, 4 (slap slap clap clap)

Player 4 then does the same, starting with their own number and following with someone else's:

4, 4, 7, 7 (slap slap clap clap)

Anybody who makes a mistake or fails to keep the rhythm is out but remains in the circle, making it more difficult for the other players, who must remember not to use the numbers of the people who are out.

5.Fast Skipping Game:

Two people turn the rope in full circles.
Players line up on one side of the rope.

One person runs into the middle of the rope.

The rope turners turn the rope at normal speed for three jumps then they turn the rope twice as fast to see how long the skipper can stay in.

Whilst this is happening, the rest of the players count how many jumps each skipper does.

The player with the most jumps wins.

6.Hunter and Watch man:

Using sticks, stones or chalk, mark out a circle about 3 metres in diameter. This will be the animal 'pen'.
Choose one player to be the Hunter and another to be the Watchman.
The rest of the players take the role of animals.
The Watchman must stay guarding the 'pen' for the duration of the game.
To start, the 'animals' run around as the Hunter tries to catch them. If the Hunter does catch one, they are lead over to the pen.
Once in the pen they cannot escape, but can be rescued if one of the other animals touches them.
Stop the game at any time, but you might want to set a time limit in advance or declare an end when a certain number of animals have been caught.

7. I Spy Game:

Someone starts the game by choosing an object in the car, up ahead near the road, on a sign or if you are home - just something in the room.
The person only tells the colour of the object and says: I spy something with my little eye and the colour of it is "red"

The other players start guessing objects that are red until the right object is named.

Whoever guesses it correctly gets to choose the object for the next round.

With younger children, you might want to make it easier by giving hints such as "it's up ahead on the side of the road."
