Camping is one of the greatest things to do in the summer months. When children think of summer, they think of camping. This is because they are able to engage in various games outdoors. Sometimes they get tired of playing the same games like tag and touch football all the time. So if you do some research you will come across a number of games that are new and more exciting than the traditional games. Here are some tips to finding games to play while camping.
It’s not all the time that you are immersed in nature. So when such an opportunity arises, try involving nature in the games. A fun and simple way of doing this is to divide the children into groups. Ask them to make something original by using things in nature. Always make sure not to harm (pull out, pick, kill, or injure) any living wildlife or plants. The team with the most original creation wins!
Another interesting game is called ‘Follow the Drummer’. This is a perfect camping game. The game requires a large outdoor area without dangerous obstacles. One of the children beats a drum. The others are blindfolded. The blindfolded ones follow the drum beat to spot the location of the drum. As the blindfolded child nears the drummer, the beat gets softer. Once the drum is spotted the child follows the drummer. The game continues until all children are marching with the drummer.
