As children play together, they’ll discover new things about one another — and they’ll have a blast! You’ll build unity in your group, and kids will clamor for the next event when you use these 10 new ideas.

Ages 6 and Up

Form groups of four or more. Give each group a roll of bathroom tissue. To weave the rug, groups lay out four 6-foot rows of tissue. Then they must weave four 6-foot rows across the first rows. Tell groups to weave their rugs tightly so the rugs will be sturdy. Once the rugs are finished, have groups raise their rugs and hold them in the air.

Ages 8 and Up

Form groups of four. Give each group paper bags, newspapers, scissors, and tape. Have each group choose a person to “turn” into a scarecrow. Allow 15 minutes for each group to cut and tape the scarecrow outfit onto its person.

Take pictures of all the scarecrows. As a prize, give each person a piece of Tongue Splashers bubble gum to “paint” their tongues different colors.

Ages 8 and Up

Form two teams. Give each teammate a cornstalk, broomstick, or tree branch to use as a hockey stick. Use a newspaper-stuffed paper lunch sack as a hockey puck. You’ll need several of these since the game action will shred them quickly. Set a trash can on its side at each end of the play area to use as goals. The object of this game is for each team to get the puck into its team’s goal.
