Starting the First Game

Aug 17, 2007
Children like to play games. When they go to a birthday party, they are expecting to have a good time with friends of their own age. Find out the simple game on how to start the fun for children aged 5-4 years.

After a period of free play the young host's mother produced a tiny bell and asked the children if they wouldn't like to play "Ring Bell Ring." All the children bowed their heads in their laps while Johnny, holding on to the bell clapper, ran and hid in the next room. When he was safely hidden the hostess called out, "Ring Bell Ring." The children then pointed in the direction of the bell ringer. This simple game delighted the children and had to be repeated again and again with a different bell ringer each time.

Then the hostess told a story about Mother Kitty and Baby Kitty. She chose a little lass to be Mother Kitty. Then Mother Kitty and all the baby kitties went fast asleep. While Mother Kitty slept four of the babies awakened and tiptoed away to hide. When Mother Kitty awakened and found her babies gone she cried, "Meow." The little lost kittens cried, "Mew." Mother Kitty had to locate her babies by sound. After her every "Meow," the babies answered, "Mew."
"Policeman and Lost Child" next delighted the young¬sters. One child was Policeman, and Mother worriedly asked his help in searching for her lost child. The Police¬man asked Mother to tell him what her lost child was wearing. Mother then described in detail the clothes of her lost child. The Policeman looked about at the chil¬dren and brought to Mother the child answering the description.

A "Game of Touch" was next on the program. The hostess put three familiar objects in a cloth bag-a ball, a toy automobile and a pencil. Each youngster took his turn at identifying the objects by feeling them through the bag. For "Bucket Ball" the children formed a circle with a wastebasket in the center. Then each child was given a chance to throw a large rubber ball into the waste-basket. Young children are not very adept at aiming a ball, but they thoroughly enjoy ball games. In this game, if a youngster did get the ball in the basket he was given another throw.

It is important to have a game in which the children can easily understand so they can enjoy the game. The game "Ring Bell Ring", story about Mother Kitty and Baby Kitty, Policeman and Lost Child and a "Game of Touch" are the simple games that the 3-4 years children can easily follow.
