April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 400

If you're like most parents, you probably remember that much of your youth was spent outside. While there are exceptions, most parents today grew up playing outside at parks, in their backyards, or elsewhere. Today's kids are too often glued to the television, but you can help them get some fresh air, exercise, and even learn a few things by helping show them cool games to play outside. There are a variety of different fun outdoor games for kids, whether you've only got a single child or an entire classroom full of them. And they're normally inexpensive or outright free to play, which is a major consideration in today's world.

Schools often rely on cool games for kids to play outside. Something as simple as educational field trips can help them stay active and learn, but games on the playground can be great choices too. Kids outdoor relay games offer a way for kids to get active, challenge themselves, and learn to work together. They'll teach teamwork, good sportsmanship, and much more. They're essentially little more than stick games, too, since they let kids use little more than a stick as a baton. This is a far cry from online stick games, which are simply stick figure flash games.

At home, learning a few dog games for kids is a great way to get the family pet involved. Fetch and Frisbee are common, but you may be able to convince your kid - and your dog - to run a race with one another. There are plenty of other options as well, so don't overlook your pets when you try to figure out cool games to play outside. Fun outdoor games for kids can range from complicated to simple, so be sure that you take the time to figure out some that your whole family will be able to take part in.

You can also play hunting games with your kids as well. Hid and go seek is a good example, but hiding a variety of items for them to find is also a fun way to help them problem solve and enjoy the outdoors. And of course, camp games for kids are among the best on which to base your own outdoor pursuits. Review some of the more popular games played at camp and apply them at home or in your classroom. You'll have no shortage of great ideas when you use cool games from camps as your model.

Educational field trips are a great way to fascilitate outside play. There are plenty of fun games that can be played while on these trips. This brings learning and fun together in a fun-filled environment.
