Studies show that children are spending less and less time outdoors. Experts encourage games that can give them outside time and exercise.
Hide and Seek
“Ready or not, here I come!” – hide and seek is a highly popular children’s game played all around the world. No equipment is needed to play it, which makes it very easy to play. The person who is “it” counts to a certain number at a spot with their eyes closed, while the rest of the players find a hiding spot and dig in. After the countdown is complete, the player will seek out other hidden players – the one who is found first is the loser while the one found last is the winner.
Wiffle Ball is the children’s version of baseball, designed for play in confined spaces, including indoors. The game is played using a lightweight plastic ball and bat, making it much safer than actual baseball equipment. The ball is also perforated for easy curvature when pitching.
