3. Duck Duck Goose
If you plan to entertain few little guests outdoors, this is one of the most popular traditional kids outdoor games that they can play.
Ask the kids to sit down, facing inwards, forming a circle. One of the kid is chosen to be the "It". The "It" is supposed to walk around the outer side of the circle, tapping on each kids head, and calling out, "duck" or "goose"
The "duck" stays put, and the "goose" is supposed to stand up and chase the "It"" around the circle. The "goose" has to tag the "It" before he or she can sit on the empty spot in the circle left behind by the new "goose"
If the "goose" tags the "It", then they can sit back in the empty spot and if the "goose" cant' tag the "It", they become the new "It".Where as if the "It" manages to reach and sit on the empty spot in the circle, the "goose" then become the new "It".
These are just few of fun kids outdoor games which kids can enjoy playing.
