For example one can say, “I am four years old, I have long black hair and I am wearing pink dress. Who am I?” After recording each one’s voice individually, play it back to the group of children and ask them to guess the voice of kid who is speaking.
Freeze: It is a popular game among kids of all ages. It can be simply played indoor or outdoor. Choose a kid as Mr. / Ms. Freeze. The other kids can run around Mr. Freeze until he says “freeze”. Kids should remain in freeze position until Mr. Freeze says “Unfreeze.” You can also play some music and ask the children to dance until the music stops. When you stop the music, the kids have to freeze suddenly in whatever position they are.
Duck, Duck, Goose: A perfect game activity suitable for children with high energy. Sit the children in a circle shape, facing each other. One kid walk around the circle and taps on the head of each kid calling him duck. The fun begins when child calls someone a goose. The “goose” chases the first child and tries to catch him before he can sit down in the open space. If the goose gets him, the first one has another go. If goose fails, he had to walk around the circle and find another goose.
Hide and Seek: No group play activities are complete without the popular Hide and Seek. In this game, one child covers his/her eyes and counts aloud while other kids hide.
