To play this game, you need nothing! The rules are simple – one player needs to cover his/her eyes and count aloud, while the others have to hide. As soon as the player finishes counting, the first found player will be the next one to find.
Warning: This game usually makes players end up in a laughing fit. So, try to control your laughter if you do not want to be found.
Building is yet another fun game and it can be played both indoors and outdoors. To play this game, all your kids need are building blocks, pillows, cardboard boxes, etc. They can use these to construct anything they like. They can also play around with shapes and sizes as per their liking.
If you do not have building blocks, you can provide paper cups or cards to your children. You can maybe have a competition of who builds the tallest tower or who builds a tower in the shortest period of time, etc.
