1. In and Out

  • Materials Required: Masking tape
  • Suitable Ages: 3 to teenagers
  • Number of Players: As many as the game hall can accommodate
  1. Use masking tape to tape two parallel lines that are two feet apart from each other. The area in between the two taped lines is considered the “IN” area and vice versa for the “OUT” area.
  2. Divide the children to two groups, and ask each group to stand shoulder to shoulder outside the lines
  3. When the leader say “IN”, all must remain in “OUT” area or jump to “OUT” area.
  4. Whoever fails to follow will have to leave the game.

School-going children love this game. Some teenagers like to join in to challenge themselves.

2. The Silent Killer

  • Materials Required: None
  • Suitable Ages: 7 to adult
  • Number of Players: Maximum 30 people in a circle
  1. Sit all of the children in a circle, with legs crossed.
  2. Have all children put their heads down.
  3. One leader (preferably an adult or teenager) walks around the circle and taps one child on the head.
  4. This child being tapped is “The Silent Killer”. The child "kills" other players by winking at them.
  5. If you are winked at, silently count to 10, then put your feet in the middle of the circle and take a nap.
  6. If the killer kills 2 people, then he wins.
  7. The killer can be "witnessed" as well. If you think you know who the killer is, before you get winked at, you can say you have a suspect. Such as "I suspect that Annie is the killer". If someone seconds it (agrees with you) then Annie loses. Otherwise, she comes clean. If Annie is not the killer, then the accusers are dead, too.

Some naughty children will pretend to be the killer, which complicates the situation. However, the confusion is what makes it fun.

These games will have the participants laughing uproariously.

  • What is the name of your school? Sausage.
