I'm planning a camp for 3-5 year olds and I'm trying to think of crafts and games for them. What are some games/crafts you liked at that age or you've seen kids like?

Candyland was always popular, Chutes and Ladders, Pickup-stix, Connect 4, hopscotch and jump rope. Bingo. Generic "Story Time" works. Popcicle stick bird houses, just make sure the glue you use is easy to wash off fingers. It goes by many names but "Memory" was what I remember it as, where you have pairs of pictures on cards face down, you then pick cards, each pair you "remember" after so many turns is a point. Make-your-own sock puppet. Pipe-cleaner critters.

I helped out at a day care once with a bunch of little four and five year olds. They seemed to like the "wolf" game a lot. Basically you count to three and turn your back while people sneak up on you. Then you turn around and everyone has to freeze, the one who moves loses. If you get touched, they win the game.

Another game they seemed to like more than anything was playing soccer. But if that's too rough, you can try tag. But you can try the creative version where you touch someone and they have to freeze. Someone else must touch that person to release them. You have to freeze as many people as possible.

That's all I got.

Duck-duck-lynch is a good idea, though (or its bastardized stepchild, "Duck-duck-dayvig.")

I work with kids afterschool 2 days a week so i have a whole slew of stuff you could use
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Yep, just like yesterday, because it was yesterday, as you thought "I'm 13 now. Maybe I will finally understand this game. All I have to do is try!"

Keep trying, little boy.

No, it's just that I tagged everyone as goose except for the last guy, who pretty much just sat there, lol. I think it was at a camp a year or two ago.

1. Tag( running around with one person trying to tag another person. That person must chase others and try to tag them). ( A large field is required).
2. Hide and seek(a place with hiding places)
3. Musical chairs.
4. A good game of Boxing.

Join Pinterest. It has a whole host of stuff regarding children's activities, crafts, games, gifts, etc. I have included a link just below of my "Children's Activities" board.

(It may not work as Pinterest is a mostly private website, but I can email you a link so you can join as it is invitation only.)

I hope this helps. (:
