Get your party going with a game of pickle. This is a great kids' activity to get them moving as they chase each other around. Get them to work up an appetite with this classic birthday party game.
Number of players:
What you need:
- tennis ball
Set up two bases around five metres apart.
Two of the children stand on each base and are "it" while the remaining children go to one base or the other.
The game starts with the two children on the bases throwing the ball to each other.
The object of the game is for the remaining children to time running from one base to the other without being tagged by "it".
If you are tagged, then you are "it", replacing the child who tagged you out with the ball in hand.
The game continues until the children are too tired to run.
Most kids will love "stealing bases" again and again and hoping that the children on the bases will throw the ball wild, allowing everyone to steal bases all at once.
