Children’s games

Here is a pdf of children’s games, no equipment needed:

We hope this is something that will be useful to travelers everywhere. Even if you don’t have kids yourself, you might find yourself cooped up with someone else’s and in need of a quick distraction. Besides, these particular games are fun for all ages, so don’t be shy about playing with your adult buddies even if they insist that they don’t want to and have better things to do.

As with all the pdfs on this blog, we’ve tried to keep it simple and mainstream. It’s just the classics and all the instructions have been pared down to the bare essentials.

The games are mostly indoor games, like Twenty Questions and I Spy. We’ve included some of the main outdoors games too but kids are pretty easy to entertain outdoors. The indoors games are more important because of all those desperate travel moments on a plane or a bus, at a fancy restaurant, etc.

The full list is:

  1. Charades
  2. Goat
  3. Fizz, buzz
  4. Hide and seek
  5. I went to market and I bought
  6. I spy
  7. One thing I see, hear, smell, touch
  8. Red light, green light
  9. Simon says
  10. Tag
  11. Telephone
  12. Ten little monkeys
  13. Twenty questions
  14. What time is it, Mrs. Wolf?
