The weather this weekend is looking like the British summer at it's finest (patchy!). No matter where you end up, or who you're hanging out with, here are some of our favourite games:
40:40: One person is ‘it’ and they count to 20 at ‘base’. Everyone else hides. They must then get back to base before being tagged by the counter.
Quick Cricket: One person in the middle with a bat and must keep their feet still. Everyone around them has to get them out by either hitting their legs of catching them out
Fishbowl: Everyone writes 5 words on a piece of paper then chucks them in the bowl. Split into teams and guess as many as you can per round. Round 1: Describe it. Round 2: Describe it using only 1 word. Round 3: Act out the word.
Ticket To Ride: This is a fun strategy game that takes a bit more pre planning and head space.
RIDDLE US THIS…
How can you drop an egg onto concrete without breaking it?
And finally, here's a little link to our favourite puzzle-y discovery of the week… The Dudolf on Instagram. He is a talented illustrator and game creator. Some of them are absolutely fiendish! Take a look and let us know you fave over at @around_the_box.
