Guiding the child through play to acquire new skills and develop old ones is a great idea that makes many parents look for activities that achieve this goal instead of playing just for fun.

Five activities for children, fun and useful

Therefore, we have gathered here for you five activities that can be easily applied with kids and do not need complicated tools that are difficult to obtain or expensive, but are available in all homes.

1- Prohibited movement:

Participants: an unlimited number.

Expected time: from (1) to (5) minutes.

How to play:

The supervisor identifies a certain movement for the participants and asks them to imitate all his movements except for that one, then he begins to perform some of the movements while they imitate him, and suddenly he abandons the forbidden movement.

It is best to assign a monitor to the participants to control movement and not cheat.

How to play:

 a number of participants (one from each team) are selected and their eyes are closed with pieces of cloth, then colored papers are thrown so that each color has a specific value, for example (red = 10, blue = 20), and the participants with their eyes closed in a larger group. A number of cards, and their colleagues can guide them to the place of the cards, and the winner is the one who accumulates the largest balance.

3- Blind and Orange:

Participants: preferably two for each round of play.

Expected time: from (1) - (2) minutes.

Tools required: 2 small bowls, 6 oranges, cloth to cover the eyes of the participants.

- Two of the contestants are chosen, and two small containers shall be placed next to each of them, and six jars are placed next to each.

- Then they cover their eyes after they know the distance.
