Here’s a fun game to play inside on wintry days, and you can actually call it school!
Blow up a balloon and bop it back and forth. The catch? Each person has to say the name of something in a particular category before she or he can hit it. For instance, if the category is colors then the kids can shout blue, red, green, etc.
It sounds easy but it’s harder than you think! Even I was going “um, um, um……” and barely getting vegetable names out before the balloon hit. As you use up the easy words, it gets trickier and sillier.
This can be adapted to any age and any subject. Some ideas– countries, U.S. presidents, fruits, holidays, animals, the periodic table of elements…… 😉
