Creative Play Quick Tip: Keeping Games Fresh

Breathe new life into group games by changing up the rules!

Declare today “opposite day” for your kids’ favorite yard games, then set them free to explore new ways to play. Old standbys like tag, Simon says, leapfrog and follow-the-leader will seem completely new when kids have the power to turn them on their heads. This whimsical change is sure to bring about lots of laughs–and may even create a few new favorites to join your list of go-to outdoor games!
