3 Fun Games To Play With Your Kids Bikes

Being a parent can be difficult sometime especially when it comes to finding fun things to do with your kid. With our four fun games, however, you can use your kids bikes to their full potential. Kids bikes are often overlooked as instruments that can be used for traveling or for a fun trip down the road. This simply isn’t true anymore. Start getting the creative juices rolling with our fun games and make your own kid’s bikes games that will definitely please your children.

Hide and Seek Cycle Style

The bicycle version of hide and seek is based on the old classic ‘Hiding’O’Seek’. You can try this game on a small plot of land somewhere or if you have a big garden. The principle of the game is that your child is only allowed to hide where they can hide with their bike. The seeker has to count to thirty and then find the hiders as quickly as possible. The first person to be found is the next seeker. Make sure that you have adults who can help keep control of where the children are going. Make sure they understand where they are not allowed to hide and where they can hide.

Create a bicycle competition

Children love it when they have something to aim for. Make your own bicycle competition by thinking of different ways for them to win. The prize can be a bag of candy or a new toy. Ask your children what they would like to win in a competition. If you can afford it, make that the prize. Two competitions that we host is a bicycle race. The first person who passes the finish line wins. Another competition we made was ‘Find the most of something’ competition. I played this during a park race. The child who collected the biggest amount of red leaves in thirty minutes won. It’s a definite child-pleasing game!

Litter Campaign

Parents should start educating their children about the importance of litter and the environment. For this reason our last game is a litter campaign. Give your children plastic bags and make them wear gloves and go on a litter search. Make the campaign as fun as possible and talk to your children about the benefits of cleaning our earth. Kids love to know they are doing something special for the planet.

Fun Games to Play Around a Camp

We have several games that we carry with us, just in case we need them. If it is rainy or we just want to get rested up and stay in camp. Here is a list of the games we have.

Cribbage, Uno, Phase ten, Skip BO, Jenga, Dominoes, Rummikub, Kismet, Sequence, Mexican train dominoes. Card games of all kinds. There are so many more that you can carry with you.

The Jenga game is a bunch of little pieces of wood that you stack up and try to remove one at a time until one makes the whole mess falls. It can be nerve wrecking. Rummikub is a game that is a cross between rummy and dominoes. Kismet is a dice game. Sequence is a card/ board game.

Now these are just a few of the games available and not all are suited for just two people. So then we ask our nearby campers if they would like to join us. We get to know our new neighbors that way and make new friends. You can pitch horseshoes, or play badminton. These will fit in your truck or camper easily.

These games are good games to have in any camper to pass the time away having fun. Hunters especially will want something to do when they can’t be in the woods hunting. So games are a good thing to have on hand all the time. Most hunters will have a poker deck with them anyway.

Some people will have a TV, and that is good but I prefer cards or games.

Another thing you can do is play a musical instrument. Lots of campers will play the guitar. I play the banjo, it does not play good alone so it makes good sense to get a guitar to play with.
We have met so many new friends out in the camps this way and we remain friends a long time.

Children have a good time playing with adults if it is a game they can understand, so get them involved. They will enjoy camping more if they are amused. They like to win also.

Women if they don’t like cards or games they can do crochet, knitting or cross-stitching. You can carry little projects with you and not get messed up. And, there is always reading a good book. So, with so many things to do there is no reason not to go camping even is bad weather.

Fun Games to Play With Your Dog Outside

There are many reasons for wanting to play with your dog. Aside from the fact that this is an entertaining activity for you both it also keeps your dog from getting bored plus it makes him healthier mentally and physically.

If you play with your dog on a regular basis, you develop bonds of understanding, respect, loyalty, and communication that remain forever. Games moreover are a fun way to train your dog to: obey you and not the other way around and to socialize with you and other pets you might have.

How can you tell that your pooch is bored? Observe his attitude, if he becomes destructive and often gets into trouble these are sure signs he has nothing to do.

Fun Outdoor Games For You and Your Dog

1) Fetch – There are canines which are natural fetchers and there are those who aren’t but all of them do love this game. You can use a stick or his favorite toy for this.

To play with your dog, throw the toy and tell him to fetch it and return it to you.

2) Frisbee – You both can exercise with this very physical game which is perfect for the overly active dog. This is just like a modified version of the fetch game where you throw a flying disk known as a Frisbee. Your dog should try to catch the Frisbee in midair or otherwise and bring it back to you.

Once you and your dog get really good with this you can opt to join competitions. Competitions are confidence boosters both to you and the dog itself.

3) Hula Hoop – This is a game you can play indoors or outdoors, start with a hoop appropriate to the size of your dog. Begin the game by laying the loop on the ground. If your dog figures out that he has to be in the center of the circle, praise or reward him.

After he’s used to this you can play with your dog by teaching him to jump through the hoop standing on its side raised inches above the ground.

4) Treasure Hunt – Dogs will love using their noses and powers of concentration in this game which you can play indoors or outdoors. Start with a treat that he really likes, show him the treat, and have him watch you put it behind a couch or a nearby bench.

Gradually make it harder for your dog to find the treat. If you want to teach your dog to find anything through this game, change the treats to shoes, or belt or any item that you can easily loose.

A Few Reminders

1) End the game while your pooch is still interested not when he is already bored. This is one of the techniques to establish control over your dog.

2) Don’t forget to reward your dog with his favorite treat if he successfully performs anything.

3) When playing with your already confident canine pet, letting him win all the time makes the him dominant. Instead of you controlling him, you now find yourself being controlled by your pet because he beat you over and over in your games.

4) If you play with your dog who is the shy type, let him win once in a while, this will develop his self confidence. However, don’t overdo this or you will create an overly confident dog.
