    Heart Games

    I would love to hear about games to teach my grandkids that don't come in a box or on a computer. Doing things together makes memories for all.

    Default Re: Games

    i remember when we were kids we would play Mother May I and Red Light Green Light.

    mother may would have a line of kids and about 20 or so feet(yelling distance) would be mother. mother would yell instructions to the other kids like Tom take 5 giant steps and he would yell 'mother may i' and mother would say yes or no. if the kid didn't ask, then they had to go back to the start. the first one to reach the mother now became the new mother.

    red light green light would start with the same set up. the one kid would turn their back to the line of kids and yell green light, the line of kids would them run to see who could tag the "light' first. first one to tag would be the light. at any time the 'light' could turn to face the kids, yell red light and everyone had to freeze. if someone didn't or fell or moved at all(depending on how strict you want to be with the age group you have to work with) they would go back to the start.

    we also sang songs that i still remember to this day.

    Miss Mary Mack Lyrics & Music | BusSongs.com

    and the other one i remember well is

    Did You Feed My Cow?
    Did you feed my cow? (Yes, Ma-am)
    Could you tell me how? (Yes, Ma-am)
    What did you feed her? (Corn and Hay)
    What did you feed her? (Corn and Hay)
    Did you milk her good? (Yes, Ma-am)
    Now did you milk her like you should? (Yes, Ma-am)
    How did you milk her? (Squish, Squish, Squish)
    How did you milk her? (Squish, Squish, Squish)
    Did my cow get sick? (Yes, Ma-am)
    Was she covered with tick? (Yes, Ma-am)
    How did she die? (Uh, Uh, Uh)
    How did she die? (Uh, Uh, Uh)
    Did the buzzards come? (Yes, Ma-am)
    Did the buzzards come? (Yes, Ma-am)
    How did they come? (Flop, Flop, Flop)
    How did they come? (Flop, Flop, Flop)

    the adult would sing the song, more of saying the words and the kids would say what is in (_).

    remember anything you do with the kids that is away from the normal life for them will build a lasting memory.
